Echuca-Moama club members Josh Williams and Lars Collins went to the Victorian championships.
Josh Williams and Lars Collins of Zanshin Shotokan Karate (Echuca-Moama) recently competed at the national all styles Victorian state championships with great results.
In a strong performance, Williams finished second in the 16-17-year-old kata section.
Purple belt Collins and brown belt Williams then fought each other in the final of the 16 to 17-year-old kumite (sparring).
Sensei Terry Raftry said it was a great result considering the rest of the competitors were black belts.
Raftry said Williams was a strong fighter but Collins was extremely fast.
‘‘Near the end of the fight Josh was just in front on points but was unfortunately disqualified, giving Lars first place and the 16 to 17-year-old Victorian state kumite title,’’ he said.
‘‘Both Lars and Josh work hard and are extremely focused on their goals.’’
