Our Team Taya athletes and coaches have achieved excellent results at the recent 2016 Gold Coast Open held at the Carrara Indoor Stadium from 28-29 May 2016 bringing home total of 6 Golds, 4 Silvers and 3 Bronzes all in sparring events. There were many "firsts" for our athletes - competing and some winning against higher ranked opponents in Blue Belt and Red Belt divisions, first time experiencing Daedo electronic scoring and head kicks for our cadets, it also marked the successful comeback of Jordan Elliott after a long layoff from the sport. They have all stepped up to the challenges and have learned so much from this experience. Summary of our results is as follows:


Jordan Elliott                   Bronze (Black Belt)

Kyan Gonzales                Silver (Black Belt)

Connor Fleming              Silver and Bronze, two divisions (Red Belt)

Ysabella Querubin          Gold (Red Belt) 

Aaditya Kadam               Golds, two divisions (Blue Belt)

Kiara Fleming                  Silver and Bronze, two divisions (Blue Belt) 

Sofia Querubin                Silver (Blue Belt), Bronze (Yellow Belt)

Diego Querubin               Golds (Blue and Yellow Belt)
