On 25 March, four students from Medowie’s ‘The Sweat Shed’ participated in the ISKA NSW OPEN kickboxing and karate tournament in Sydney.

Coach Daniel Bezuidenhout told News Of The Area, “This was the first ever tournament that three of the students, Harry, Jack and Tiana had entered, and only Divan’s second time.”

“This was really impressive to see them reach this level so quickly, and confidently.”

The youngest competitor of them all was Jack Blue, only five years old, and he won the point sparing and clash sparing making him the NSW open champion in his age group.

Tiana Bezuidenhout, six years old, got a third place in point fighting in a division that had only boys.

She was fourth in the clash sparing.

Harry Cosgrove and Divan Bezuidenhout just missed out, but still put up an awesome fight and made their Coach, families and fellow team mates proud.

Daniel said, “There are two more tournaments later this year and I believe we will have a few more fighters that will be ready to put their hand up, and show everyone the Medowie kickboxing spirit and talent.”

“The Sweat shed- kickxercise” kids classes are a great way for children to increase fitness, confidence and self awareness.

Kids classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:30-5:30pm and adult cardio kickboxing 6-7pm, and the group can be found on Facebook.
