NZ – Christchurch Regional Kumite Tournament Results


A message from the Tournament Director – Sensei Jessica Patterson:

“Over 60 competitors gathered together on Sunday 25th June 2023 for the Christchurch Kumite Tournament at Catholic Cathedral College. It was an incredible day, with a high standard of kumite across the board, and a lot of fun had by all. We had many people entering their very first tournament, and many more doing kumite for the first time competitively. It was great to see everyone compete, and we are looking forward to seeing you at the Christchurch Regional Tournament in August.”
