Six members participated in the 2019 Australian Martial Arts Championships National Titles.

It was held in Port Macquarie across the weekend from 29 November to 1 December.

The six Imugi members competed in their own age and belt divisions and they all also competed in the next division above them.

Chase Thoburn and Mia Gillespie won national titles in their age divisions and the next age group above.

For 15 year old Mia that meant competing against 17 year olds and for Chase, he competed against the Open Men’s Black Belt division.

Chase Thoburn told News Of The Area, “Winning the Open Men’s Black Belt Freestyle Sparring division was testament to my instructors and their coaching on the day.”

“As a teenager you look at their division and wonder how it might play out if you step up and now I’ve no doubt!”

Mia Gillespie said, “I achieved a personal best score in Forms, I’d worked incredibly hard and winning two national titles is reward for my persistence.”

Mr Tony Gillespie, co-operator of the Imugi Club told News Of The Area the team performance was ‘exemplary’.

“Not every decision went our way but the final results speak for themselves.”

“We couldn’t be prouder of our students’ dedication to training and sportsmanship shown in competition.”

Full results from the weekend included: 6 National Champions; 4 National Runners Up; three third places; and one fourth place.
