Training pays off for Ngāpuhi Kenpo student
We (Haelyn’s whānau) wish to thank Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi O Ngāpuhi personally for the Discretionary Funding she received recently which assisted her to travel and compete at the Kenpo 5.0 Oceania Tournament held over the weekend 13-14 May 2017, in Cambridge. Kenpo is a mixed martial art system that focuses on self defence – learning never stops. Haelyn did exceptionally well and we are very proud of her. She trained hard over the last few months and this paid off for Haelyn. She achieved first place in forms and sets, and came second in sparring. We are very grateful and appreciative for your support that has helped Haelyn get one step closer to her goal of competing at the Worlds in Las Vegas in 2018.
The Ngaia Whānau
