2021 Canberra International Open - Kata

This year 7 pairs performed all of the 5 senior kata, with competitors from NSW and for the first time from the ACT.


The NSW teams exhibited some great kata performances with some previews of what we should anticipate to see during the 2021 National Championships.


ACT representatives, Craig Johnson and Adrian Georgiadis, with their first ever performance in the kata competition, achieved a good score and were awarded the second place and silver medal in the Katame no kata.


Positive feedback received, from competitors, officials and volunteers for its organisation, location/venue and time allocation.
