IFKKA Interclub Full Contact
24th June, Venue TBA
Start training NOW! Full contact tournaments are a lot harder than Clicker, and you need to start training early. There will be divisions for juniors as well, with limited contact, as in previous years. Anyone 11 years old and 8th kyu and up can compete. Keep an eye out for details on this too.
We're still looking for an appropriate venue for this event, and if you know of a nearby school or community hall for rent that's large enough (bigger than 10m x 10x, with lots of seating and parking, and not too expensive, please let me know as soon as possible.
Shihan Judd Reid Seminar
12th-13th May, Port Macquarie
Recently, Chris Rosiak from Kuro Obi dojo took part at the Shihan Judd Reid seminar in the Hunter Valley, organised by Hunta Karate Kyokushinkai Karate.
Shihan Judd is one of the most recent people to have done the 100-man Kumite (there's a documentary DVD available about this), and was the only Australian to ever complete the full 3 year Uchi-deshi program under Sosai Mas Oyama.
Port City Martial Arts (a Kyokushin dojo in Port Macquarie) is organising another one on the 12th and 13th of May. Yes, I know it's Mother's Day weekend, but it would still be worth a trip as Shihan Judd lives in Thailand these days, and doesn't visit Australia very often.
If you're interested, more details are available at https://www.portcitymartialarts.com.au/news.
If you're going, please let your instructor know about it. If enough people are interested, maybe a group can go up together in a car pool?
