Australian Martial Arts Championships (AMAC) NSW State Titles

Sunday, September 11, 2011

The NSW AMAC State Titles were held last Sunday 11th September. KKC had 13 students invited to enter and 7 students taking up the challenge; Robbie Simmons, Ryan Tang, Matthew Basile, Bianca Basile, Lauren Moniaci, Liam Rice and Jack Taylor. There were over 170 competitors entered, with the majority of these in the junior age divisions. This was the biggest tournament AMAC has held to date and was an invitation only event. So just being there meant you had qualified at one of the AMAC lead up competitions held earlier in the year.

KKC had some great results amongst fierce competition, the important thing is that everyone did their best, we can’t always win but we can do our best and above all have fun whilst competing. Well done to everyone for competing, photos from the day can be seen in the KKC photo gallery.
