The contingent of Tapak Suci (Muhammadiyah Martial Arts) Universitas Ahmad Dahlan (UAD) won the 11th Airlangga Championship of Tapak Suci International Virtual Open 2021 two gold medals and one silver medal. The registration process, technical meeting, and review process were conducted virtually via Zoom Meeting and Youtube account on 8-12 November 2021.
“Tapak Suci UAD sent 10 athletes divided to Male and Female Single – Empty Hand category, Male and Female Single – Armed category, Double – Armed category, and Group category. The participants followed the championship starting from an early age, teenager, and adolescence,” Santi Julia Kristi said, one of UAD athletes, as interviewed via Whatsapp on last Monday (15/11).
Afterwards, Sanji explained that the competition preparation was concise, only about a month. “We trained routinely, we trained almost every day. However, if we only depend on TC training alone, we should have additional training independently.”
The UAD athlete who achieved 1st place in the Female Single – Empty Hand category was Andini Mandala Putri. Also, Frida Nora Ayu Basri and Sanji Julia Kristi achieved 1st place in the Female Double – Armed. Afterwards, Hindriyati Muhamat, Choliz Akbar, Malika Mahira, Hasnia, and Deden Suryana bagged the silver medal in Group – Empty Hand category.  Diktilitbang
