Abdul Zahra receives his National Kumite Judge ‘A’.

This was an outstanding achievement given it was Abdul’s first attempt at a National event. Abdul was assessed over (3) gruelling days of high level competition at the Australian Open held in Melbourne by the National Referees Council – NRC (all WKF Referees) and was awarded his National kumite Judge ‘A’.

On behalf of the NSW Referees Council and Miyagikan (Abdul’s extended family) Congratulations!!
