2013 Australian Masters

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

On the 12th October the 2013 Australian Taekwondo Masters event was held at the Try Boys Stadium in Geelong. It was quite an event as members of Taekwondo Australia, ITF and STA members came together to compete in both Poomsae and Sparring. After talking to most of the competitors, coaches and organisers I found that the general though was that we should be able to compete in the various organisations competitions regardless of the organisation we belong to.
The Koryo Taekwondo Centre had a small team of 3 Competitors and 1 Poomsae Judge who came away with 4 Gold and 1 Silver medal, with our Poomsae Judge being awarded a Gold medal.

Koryo Team Members.
Joyce Stivala: 1 Gold & 1 Silver (Technical)
George Moutafis: 1 Gold (Sparring)
Spiro Papamikrouli: 1 Gold (Judging)
Russell Wood: 2 Gold (Technical)
