NATIONAL Karate Mentor Coach Sensei Anthony Hails is back in the country to guide the local athletes for the National Championships and the Oceania Championships.

Hails was away for a few weeks and came back to ensure the training program he implemented was being followed.

He said he was satisfied with what he saw and expected better performances from the athletes during the Sun Insurance-sponsored National Championships tomorrow at the Yat Sen Secondary School Hall.

"They have already risen to the training program but what they have got to do now is to finetune with the training program," Hails said.

"I will have a meeting with national coach and we will be setting a three-week training program so that they can load and load up until the Championships.

"They have all been working on the same thing so those who learnt faster would be good and we will see those who did not."

Hails has been working with Karate Fiji since 2008 and his work has paid dividends with improvements noted in the Kumite discipline as well as an increase in coaching careers from local athletes.
