WORLD CUP - OCTOBER
Two members travelled with Instructor/coach miss Cameron to Budapest, Hungary to participate in the World Cup. With over 1800 competitors it was a great experience for both of them.
1st day: Patterns - Miss Angus (left) beat Ireland in first round but, let nerves get the better of her in second round against Finland when she hesitated and lost out.
Mr Muniz went out in first round against a stronger Irish player.
2nd & 3rd day: Sparring - Miss Angus was up on the 2nd day for sparring & won comfortably against Argentina in the 1st round. She continued to dominate in the second round against Ireland right up to final stages when she received a 3 point kick to head and warnings leading to a defeat.
Mr Muniz went out to Belarus in the first round.
5th day: Power Test - We returned to the competition on final day to support Miss Angus in the power test event.
She performed knife-hand which hit too low & side kick, but did not break so, was eliminated.
Back to training now and focus on the next event.
