It was a resounding success achieved by Team Taya Athletes at the NSW State Championship and Selections Event for the upcoming Nationals with total medal tally of 20 from our 17 young athletes with 18 from sparring and 2 from poomsae - 14 Golds, 4 Silvers, 2 Bronzes. 15 have qualified and will be contesting the Nationals at the Gold Coast from 6-8 September 2019.

Notable performances were our double Gold Medallist Chelsea Gomez, Sofia Querubin, Shreyas Gurelli, Evangeline De Guzman and Jade MacGowan who have won their fights in a dominant fashion with gap scores or stopping the match early in first/second rounds. Not in team photo - Evangeline, Ethan and Shirin, shown with their own photos. Thank you to our dedicated coaches for bringing the best out of the athletes and supportive parents for your encouragement.
