ALL STAR KARATE LEAGUE TERM 1 2018
Congratulations to all students that competed in the term 1 ASKL event at Woolooware High school. The level of play was excellent and there were many entertaining matches in both Karate kumite and BJJ. The instructors were very happy with what they saw on the day and it was great to see some of the techniques learnt the day before at the ASKL workshop being put into play. The philosophy around the ASKL is about encouraging participation, friendship, good sportsmanship in a nurturing environment for all levels of students. It is a great community event between Evolution Martial Arts and Ettingshausens dojo's.
The way the older students support and help the younger ones is a highlight and they are great role models for the next generation to follow. As much as it is nice to win our focus is more on performance and that the students walk away feeling happy with their standard of play.
The ASKL competition days, are really just another day at training, but training in competition. The students learn to deal with the challenges faced by competition, the nerves, the wins and the losses and the fact that sometimes not everything goes to plan. A lot like life really.
Thank you to all officials that made the day possible. From the set up and pack up crew, the junior assistants and helpers and the senior instructors from both dojo's. Without this help and support the event would not be possible.
Look forward to seeing you all at the term 2 ASKL event on Sunday 17th June.
