History was created on 24/11/18 when Natalie Texler gained her 1st Dan Black Belt during the National Camp at AIS Canberra. As a black belt, Natalie joins her mother Sensei Sue, and her sister Anneliese Knight, who gained her belt in 2013. This is the first time a mother and 2 daughters have all achieved black belts in Kyokushin throughout Australia.
