Karate Train-On Squad In Full Swing

The 2015 Pacific Games Karate train-on squad is in full swing, under the watchful eyes of Sensei Trevor Roberts.                         

Sensei Roberts from Queensland is not new in the sport of Karate. He has been mentoring for more than 40 years.

Forty young fighters show their skills, determination and courage as they better their kicks and punches under the direction of Sensei Roberts.

The training kicked off on Friday.

The fighters came from different parts of the country and from different Karate clubs, including Kyokushin Karate from New Ireland province and Shotokan Karate, and Budokai in Port Moresby. 

The main aim behind every fighter is to make the final team of the 2015 Pacific Games.

Young Atomu Amani from New Ireland started Karate when he was in Fiji in 2003.

The interest came from the 2003 South Pacific Games in Fiji when he was an observer, following closely the action during the games.

He joined the Fiji Karate team and took part in Fiji National Tournaments.

He returned to PNG and was in low profile until the 2012 PNG Games in Kokopo when he made his comeback under the Kyokushin Karate Club.

The 25 year old is pursuing a career in Architecture drafting at the Polytech while hoping for a spot in the final team.  

Amani is one of the selected fighters who will be representing PNG in the Melbourne Open Karate Championship in March this year.
