On the weekend members from Seishikan travelled to Caloundra, QLD, to officiate at the 2011 Australian National Championships.
Seishikan was well represented with Alba Kraatz, George Wilson, John Von Stanke and Mark Azzopardi all judging and refereeing.
Carl Driesner & Shannon Barton were there in their capacity as coaches of the South Australian team.
Also we had two competitors this year. Josh Smith in Kata and Ben Pascoe-Purvis (Kata & Kumite - I think?)
Also found loitering around the SA team was Dr/Sensei Mark Purvis offering morale and medical support to those requiring it.
On a personal note, Mark tested for and received upgrade to national Kata Judge B. Having to perform shotokan kata Jion for the practical test in front of a panel of five WKF referees was a bit daunting but he came through the experience emotionally intact Check out the latest photos..
