Both Aaron and Nathan competed in Kata and Kumite, and there were many entries in their categories, so they had to earn their way to the finals !

Nathan won Bronze in Kata, with Jion.

Aaron’s performance was one of the highlights of the day, winning Gold in Kata with Sochin, Bronze in Kumite, and picking up a further 2 Silvers in Team Kumite.
