All we do is win, win, win…

Since the karate season started in February every tournament entered into by IKD Karate Australia has seen all its students receive podium results. The tournaments included many regional tournaments eg. JKA/ WF Championships in Brisbane, AFMA Championships in Brisbane, May Invitationals, Queensland State Championships, NSW State Championships, Australian Open Championships and Australasian School- and University Championships.

The level of training intensity has gone up massively since the club conducted a change of affiliation in April to a newer, more professional organisation for the gain of its members. The results speek for themselves as all of our students are highly regarded among Queensland with five of our students making the Queensland  State Team this year travelling to Sydney in August to represent our state at the National Karate Championships and three of our students even making the National Squad.

Hamid Mostofizadeh, Chairman and Chiefinstructor of IKD Karate Australia, is very happy with the performance and success of his students. Hamid Mostofizadeh said: “We have conducted training all through the off season, resuming full time training in January. This training has really paid off as shown by the results our students are achieving. The change of affiliation brought a fresh breeze to the organisation and was very beneficial for the club members.”

Five IKD- members  participated at the Queensland State Championships gained selection into the Queensland Karate State Team this year. David, Daria, Dustin, Delara and Diba will travel to Sydney in August to represent Queensland at the National Karate Championships.

For Diba it is the first time that she gained selection for the Karate State Team. Diba is only eight years old and holds a fifth kyu ( blue belt ) in karate, but she trained very hard to gain selection, won the gold medal in her division at the Queensland State Championships in Brisbane earlier this year and won the silver medal at the Australian Open Championships held in April in Sydney.

David, Daria, Dustin and Delara are Karate State Team members for several years. They are looking forward to the challenge again and aim to defend their titles or to improve their results.

Daria will also compete at the 10th World Youth Karate Cup and Training camp in Croatia on the 1./2. of July. She will represent her style and her country. She placed fifth at the World Youth Karate Cup last year and is looking forward to the challenge again. We wish her best of luck, a great trip and foremost a fantastic karate experience!

4 IKD- Australia members David, Daria, Dustin, and Delara participated at the National Karate Championships in Melbourne. 

They trained hard to gain selection for the Queensland Karate Team. Their dedication and effort brought them to the Nationals in Melbourne and they all represented  their States with pride and passion. 

Daria, who had already brought home in May the gold medal from the Oceania Cup in New Caledonia, then represented Australia at the World Karate Youth Cup in Croatia in July ( a massive tournament with over 1140 entries) and placed 5th. 

Now Daria came home from the National Titles in Melbourne with a swag of medals: She won gold in team kata, silver in her weight division in kumite and again silver in the kumite open weight division ( all weight divisions together). For her the Nationals in Melbourne were the perfect preparation for her next encounter at the Oceania Championships in Noumea from 16.-18.9.16, where she will represent Australia again.

David fought amazingly well at the Nationals and placed third, bringing home the bronze medal.

Dustin and Delara represented their state very well, but couldn’t achieve medals this time.

Chiefinstructor of IKD Australia Hamid Mostofizadeh is very proud of his student’s and their high achievements. their hard work has really paid off. Here you can see outstanding result due to diligent work and training and a persistent effort from his students.Well done everyone! Keep up the good work.

The swag of medals was a great start for IKD Australia. 

IKD-Australia is very proud of Daria, who gained National Team selection for the WKF Training Camp and Youth Cup in Umag/ Croatia from 27.6.-3.7.16.

She had a fantastic experience and performed very well in kata and kumite. She didn’t achieve a podium result but placed 5th in kumite.
