Pictured with their coach Miss Cameron, Saphia Wallek -65kg junior female sparring & Marcus Muniz -56kg junior black belt sparring.
Saphia fought her heart out in back to back bouts with very little rest and progressed to the final where she maitained the lead until the very last stages.
Marcus received a b to the semi final stages and fought well in his first bout to take the win comfortably, but then came up against a stronger opponent with more experience in the final.
We will be travelling to more International events in order that these youngsters gain as much experience at such a high level of competition.
Well done to everyone who participated.
