As our Koryo team was made up of both experienced and first timer fighters the competition proved to a great event for our team to gain considerable experience on the mat.
City West proved that both T.A and STA clubs can come together and give our Australian future Champions the much needed experience they need.
Many thanks to the City West Club for giving our Koryo Junior Sparring Team the opportunity to compete in a very friendly and well organised competition.
We would like to thank our Senior Club Instructors Joyce Stivala, Rebecca Delia, Sammy Rachele and Resi for giving up their Saturday to coach our team.
The Koryo Medal Count for the day is as follows,
