Medals in Osaka for Bathurst Seito Shito-ryu Phillip’s Dojo students

AN international experience for eight Bathurst students of the Seito Shito-ryu Phillip’s Dojo has ended with medals and memorable experiences.

Bathurst students and teachers were part of the Australian team that took part in the recent Seito Shito-ryu International Championships in Osaka.

It was the 11th edition of the International event for the elite style of karate, which traces its roots back to Okinawa.

 ALL SMILES: Laurana Smith, Matt Jones, David Smith, Jack Fry and Colin Phillips display their medals.

In the 18-35 years Kyu division – for ranking lower than black belt – Jack Fry picked up a bronze after performing two low level katas.

“I wasn’t expecting to win the kata – not up against so many higher level belts. It tuns out it didn’t matter how high a kata you performed, it was all about how you performed it,” Fry said.

Laurana Smith achieved the same result in the over 45 female open Kyu division.
