Taekwondo Central Blackbelts Ben Jerez (16), Jayme-Lee Smith (14) & Sarah Turner (14)
have been training hard to earn a spot in the Australian Team to compete in Egypt
later this year.

The team has been training up to 6 times per week with our pool of Blackbelts
for a chance a the prestigious spot of representing the country

“Theyre all looking great”,  said Taekwondo Central Head Instructor Justin Warren
theyre putting in hours of training, working conditioning, tactics and sparring drills.
There preparation has been great as many of the other high level competitors from
our club have been bringing in their experience to share with our 3 fighters and its paying
off. I feel its their time now

The selections will be held at Altone Park Leisure Centre in Beechboro, Perth of the 5th
of February and will contest the best Jnr Taekwondo Blackbelt Competitors from around the country

Ben is also part of Taekwondo Central Leadership Team who dedicated their time to building
confidence, courage and self defence skills to students ranging from 4 – 55 yrs. He has always
been a big part of our club. Hes an amazing young man who has already previously won
The Central Cup for being Taekwondo Central  Fairest & Best

With all 3 being former Australian Champions and Jayme-Lee is the current Under 18’s Blackbelt
Champion, so she would be the favourite in her division Jayme-Lee  also pulled off a silver in the
International Taekwondo Clubs Championships last year in Vietnam
while Sarah also placed Silver at the same competition ( ITCO ) in Malaysia 2 years before .
Ben was a quarter finalist in a division that had just under 30 competitors in his division

Ben & Sarah have had a break from competitions last year due to various reasons but have really
picked up the level and commited to the training in the hope of a chance at being a
Jnr World Taekwondo Champion

We wish all 3 the best of luck
