Fighting Fit Seminar Series
By Sensei Mark Mitchell
Sunday 23rd July
The next Mark Mitchell seminar will be on the 23rd July. Online bookings will be available soon. Keep that date free - you really don't want to miss it. It's especially appropriate for anyone planning on going to a full contact tournament or a senior grading.
Spectators will be charged 1/2 price on the day
Online bookings made after Wednesday 19th July, and any cash booking, will incur a $10 handling fee.
IFKKA Kata Tournament
Our next interclub tournament is the kata tournament. We've already started practicing now for this event - team kata requires a lot of practice! Entry per competitor will be $30 on paper, or $20 online. Ask me for a paper form if you prefer it that way.
14th IFKKA National Championships
Also known as the Sparring Spectacular, this features 3 kinds of sparring - Points, Clicker, and Full Contact. Once again, we have booked the NCIE in Redfern, and we're looking forward to having another great event!
September Senior Grading
It's not far off! If you're planning on grading for 4th (green belt) or higher, start preparing now! If you're not sure what you have to do, ask me as soon as possible.
The dates for the 2018 Camp have been confirmed! We've also managed to confirm that once more, Shihan David (now 7th Dan) will be attending again. Make sure you book this in your calendar.
Camp T-shirt design competition
Also, this time, we're inviting any and all aspiring designers, to design the t-shirt for thiscamp. It's a competition. The winner will get a free t-shirt and one day free at the camp!. Non-training family members can try too, and they can either START training, or a training family member will get the prize instead. Let me know, and I'll put you on the list!
