Plus the two taking photos, we had 22 people from Wellington/Hutt Valley/Kapiti Coast take the Kumite rules seminar under Karate New Zealand Referee Council member and WKF A grade Kumite Referee - Sensei Grant Holland.

They all qualified as Regional Judge C. Grant did a superb job! We had apologies from a further 15 black belt instructors so things are definitely on the up in the Lower North Island.

Renowned KNZ Kumite great - Raymond Yee - led the Kumite seminar for competitors in the morning, assisted by National team members Suzanne Yee, Anton Pagalilawan and Elian Pagalilawan, with senior Wellington region instructors Rajesh Ravji, Phil Richardson and Leo Donnelly.

Twenty-two participants from 7 regional dojos with apologies from 5 other dojos. Together with a separate complementary Kumite seminar in the afternoon in Lower Hutt led by Senseis Phil Laing and Scott McKenzie, were attended by 25 students.

It was a great KNZ training day in the Wellington Region!
