Previous National Championships
ITF National Championships 2016
The 2016 ITF National Championships featured competitors from all Australian states as well as New Zealand, participating in events such as Sparring (combat), Patterns (Pre-choreographed routines), Special Techniques (Spectacular aerobatic board breaking) and Power Breaking (measuring the strongest breaks).
In addition to many juniors and beginners, the event included a high percentage of entrants who are current and recent World Champions and as expected, the matches were of a very high standard, conducted in a great spirit. The formed an ideal preparation for the upcoming 2016 ITF World Championships.
Thank you to all who came along and supported the event, particularly those who helped out as volunteers and officials on the day.
The success of any event lies in the contribution of the many volunteers in various roles from set-up crew, umpires and officials, as well as instructors who enthusiastically and genuinely promoted the event to their members.
We are pleased that we received such wonderful feedback, with many declaring this the best run National Championships they had attended.
