Northern Regional Championship June 2024

 Congratulations to our Tigers students who competed at the Northern Regional Championship in Darebin yesterday!

Our 16 competitors garnered a total of 24 medals! 7 Gold, 6 Silver and 11 Bronze - well done all!
There was some fantastic performances, but what makes competition special is the resilience, focus and commitment required to just get on the mat and compete. There were numerous examples of this, but one of our students summed it up perfectly when she said she wanted "To challenge myself".
Tilly did really well winning Gold in pairs poomsae, Silver in teams and Bronze in individual. Toby won Silver in teams, Bronze individual and had two sparring matches to win a Bronze.
Brandon's very first competition saw him win Bronze in individual poomsae, and an uncontested gold in sparring (unfortunately there was no suitable opponent). Bruce fought two hard matches to win the Gold in sparring and a Bronze in individual poomsae.
Juni had two poomsae matches to win the Bronze, Rohan and Sohum both did very well to win Silver in their poomsae divisions.
Lahaina won the silver in individual, Gold in pairs and Silver in teams poomsae. Sami worked hard to win the Bronze in individual.
Maya had two hard fights to win Bronze in sparring, whilst Ella won Gold in both her sparring and individual poomsae divisions!
Daniel had a tough division, winning Bronze in poomsae. Evie also had two hard sparring matches to win the Bronze medal.
Max won a Bronze in his individual poomsae division, and Daelan did really well winning the Gold in his poomsae division. Luka put in a great effort, winning Silver in his sparring division.
Although 7 of our students entered the high jump kick event, none were quite tall enough to win through against much taller opponents!
Out of the 24 medals Tigers students won, 20 of those medals represents two matches each. This means that this special group of Tigers Taekwondo students will be bringing back to our dojang their experiences in playing 44 matches at this tournament!
