2018 AUSKF Junior Nationals

The AUSKF Junior Nationals were held on April 8th in Huntington Beach California. Our own Taichi Matsuura participated as a member of the Midwest Team in the 9 and Under Division. Unfortunately, after three tough rounds was eliminated in the round of 16. Worst of all, he was injured in a very unlucky accident involving heavy locker room doors. He suffered a laceration needing 23 stitches. He is eager to return to training and is already looking forward to Junior Nationals 2019 rumored to be in Atlanta.
