Some of Daniel’s notable sporting achievements include having a 1st dan blackbelt. He has also received a Silver at Nationals in breaking special technique and sparring and made the NZ team. He won a Gold medal at the World Championships along with a six person team in special technique and fifth place in individual special technique.
