Epson New Zealand Open Taekwon-Do Tournament

Sunday 23rd October 2005 - Labour Weekend
Papatoetoe High School gym
(Dragons Spirit Dojang)
Carlie Street, Papatoetoe (right gate)




Best Belt Trophy Winners:
Chris Broughton, Jody Griffin, Club representative for the injured Lizzie Fa'afili, Danielle Drylie and Hayden Anderson

An old shoulder injury counted Lizzie Fa'afili out of the sparring final - but she still had the points to take Best Over-all Blue Belt!

One of the best bouts of the day...Chris Broughton vs Mark Trotter

Over 100 competitors at this year's open...and it was great to see so many different styles and organisations represented.
