KWF Australia: Trifu Dojo with great success

Sensei Daniel Trifu – AKF CR and KWF Board member, shared on his Facebook profile:

Congratulations Team Trifu Dojo. All our 6 competitors made the finals in the Full contact. We got four first places. Our NSW Champs: Hamido Zandi, Julien Gastaldi, Cullen DiMattina, Sebastian Rayk. Our Ginger ninja Jack Heath came second in a huge division and in probably the worst decision I have seen in a long time. Yuuki Gonlin came second to Julien not before he KOed his first two opponents. His last five victories came via KO with roundhouse kick. I think the Head Hunter is an appropriate nick name.

Thanks to all the supporters too: Eva Colbran, Akiko Miwa-Gonlin, Anneke Birkenstock. Francis DiMattina, Richard Heath. Special thanks goes to partner Lynne O’Brien

Here is one amazing performance: Continue reading “KWF Australia: Trifu Dojo with great success”
