    Many thanks to Elisha Jones for the following report:
    "Sunday was a great day for all of us. I got a lot of experience on the day and could not believe that I got man of the match. It was amazing! At first I did'nt think I would do it. It was so scary getting up there in front of all of the judges my stomach turned when my name was called. I thought I might freeze like I had In my pattern but I just kept walking to the centre judge who was doing the sparring and when he said sijak I just went for it and gave it all I had. As the sparring went on I gained confidence with my punches and kick’s. My friends did very well in the competition, and my little brother Joshua WOW he was amazing.  I didn’t know what to say and my other brother Ryan did very well too. I was really impressed with them both as well as all the club members .All the junior grades were very nervous as this was our first competition but once we got going it was great.A big thank you to all the senior grades who helped us and all the people who helped set up that fantastic day for us. So many thanks" - Elisha Jones, age 9, green belt
