Shihan Antonio Piñero participate in Trifu Dojo tournament

Sensei Daniel Trifu shared the news on his Facebook profile:

Shihan Antonio Piñero, 8th Dan, the chairman of the Kyokushin World Federation was the guest of honor at Trifu Dojo in house tournament.

Trifu Dojo tournament

114 Kids took part in this event. Some didn’t last the full day but what a mammoth task to become COMPETITORS. Respect to you all for making it happen. Very few people can say they’ve competed in a martial arts event. The tournaments purpose was PARTICIPATION. Every student received at least a participation trophy with each age group receiving an overall grand champion title. We had students as young as three competing this time.

Congrats to our little wonder girl that won the 3 year old grand champion title. The three year old were fantastic , all of them. The sword fighting in particular was impressive.

Our talent recruiting team kept an eye on the future champions and now we can focus on getting them ready for the external tournaments.

After lunch the battle for the big trophies started with very competitive bouts in non contact and contact.

The kata divisions were also amazing with four divisions available and big trophies. Three of the divisions were won by our amazing girls. Ava Mccann was not there this time but she will be proud of her contribution in the “power girl” culture in our dojo.

Considering that we also had some great opposition for “what’s my priority today” with the Mayweather vs Mc Gregor fight happening at the same time I must say that we are very impressed by the commitment from everyone!

Thank you to all involved and in particular to our instructors and helpers on the day.

We are very humbled by the support we receive from our parents. Thank you , thank you! Also thank you for trusting the process and trusting us and our team.

Special thanks to Michael Parkinson taking on the hardest job , that of the “BBQ Master”.

Thank you Trifu Dojo community for a fantastic day!

Osu! Sensei Daniel and Sensei Lynne

Trifu Dojo with great success

Sensei Daniel Trifu shared on his Facebook profile:

Congratulations Team Trifu Dojo. All our 6 competitors made the finals in the Full contact. We got four first places. Our NSW Champs: Hamido Zandi, Julien Gastaldi, Cullen DiMattina, Sebastian Rayk. Our Ginger ninja Jack Heath came second in a huge division and in probably the worst decision I have seen in a long time. Yuuki Gonlin came second to Julien not before he KOed his first two opponents. His last five victories came via KO with roundhouse kick. I think the Head Hunter is an appropriate nick name. Thanks to all the supporters too: Eva Colbran, Akiko Miwa-Gonlin, Anneke Birkenstock. Francis DiMattina, Richard Heath. Special thanks goes to partner Lynne O’Brien

Here is one amazing performance:

The Head Hunter Yuki Gonlin from Trifu Dojo and KWF Australia is one of the most dangerous fighters in the World at the moment. His round house kick is very unorthodox and extremely powerful. His last five wins were devastating knock outs with at least two of the opponents being admitted to hospital. These two knockouts were from today. You can see how powerful this Australian fighter really is and he is only a yellow belt.

Thank you to all the children who came along this week to trial our classes and having LOTS OF FUN with us. We are very excited that many have already decided to join our Dojo – what a wonderful journey you are starting on with us. Thank you Wollondilly 

Most karate instructors don’t believe children under five have the focus or ability to learn karate. This is not our belief or experience. Check out this two year old in his first karate class!! Thank you to his Dad for allowing us to share this cutie pie video.

9-time karate champ Ava McCann is aiming for her black belt and one day the Olympics

9-time karate champ Ava McCann is aiming for her black belt and one day the Olympics

AVA McCann wanted to give up several times while facing adversity in her karate career,

but she never did and will go for her black belt grading in November 2016


“I will have to fight 20 fresh black belts in a row full contact with no protection. I’m not looking forward to that,” she said.

The self-confessed “computer nerd” is this week’s Junior Sports Star nominee. Last month Ava won her division in her first full contact bout, the Australian Kyokushin Karate Association’s 40th national titles. The 10-year-old also won a non-contact event at the tournament, taking her swag of national titles in various karate disciplines to eight. Ava said winning consecutive kata titles at the Arnold Classic Australia Kyokushin Karate Championships was another highlight for her. 

The Wenona student also has experience competing against boys who are bigger and older than her. Ava began karate when she was three to help with hip problems she had from birth.

“I didn’t start walking until I was three,” she said. “When I started karate I was the worst in the class. I couldn’t even run or jump.”

Ava trains at Trifu Dojo by Sydney Harbour. 
“I like how you can fight each other and still be good friends,” she said. “Karate means ‘open hand’. It’s not really about fighting; it’s about developing your character. “I like pushing myself to my limits and then pushing myself further than my limits!”

Ava said she was initially scared of being the only girl when she moved up a class at age six.
“I was the smallest and youngest in the class, but the boys were so nice to me and they used to pretend to be scared of me,” she said. “When it was their turn to punch me they would hardly touch me.  “When I started beating boys in tournaments, they used to cry but they don’t any more.”

Ava dreams of representing Australia at the highest level.
“Karate has just been announced as an Olympic sport for Tokyo in four years, so I would love to go to the Olympics,” she said. Ava is also a competitive skier and has won a state fencing title.
