USKU Adelaide, Australia hosted our 2016 international championships over the weekend.  over 100 competitors competed in kata and kumite over the two day event, with two students from USKU NZ competing.

A day after successfully grading to shodan, Caleb Payne took out gold in Kata for his division on Saturday, and fought through to get Bronze in kumite on Sunday.

Brad Stevens scored a bronze in Kata on Saturday and pushed through several hard kumite rounds to take out the gold.

Congratulations to both Brad and Caleb for making the effort in stepping up to compete, and also bringing home some medals!
