NZ Kyokushin Nationals 2014

Moorabbin Glen Eira Leader, 16 July 2014

The karate quintet from East Bentleigh’s Extreme Kyokushin Karate claimed two first places and three third places at the New Zealand Open Championships last month. 

In his first competition, Paul Harford won first place in the men’s open full contact division, training partner Josh Collins came third. 

Harford shared equal third with fellow training mate Juan Ferrentino-lorio in the men’s kata division. 

Lisa Shnider took out top spot in the open women’s full contact category. 

Their sensei Vaviti Vavitis said he was very proud. “They’ve consistently been training two to three hours a day, seven days a week for the last three months, so there’s no surprise they did so well,” he said.
