News Update 27th June

Focus of the Week

Focus for the week is testing and curriculum so make sure you have enough tags to test.


The Fri weapons training is Jo and on Sat we’ll be doing Bokken.

Open Day 16th July

We are having an open day and BBQ on 16th Jul. After training on the Saturday we will be opening the Dojo to the general public. We have a great thing here and we want to be able to share it with anyone who wants to join us. There will be burgers and sausages a-plenty but please bring along some refreshments to add to the merriment.

We’re going to have heaps of entertainment laid on, from sumo suits to bouncy castles (and that’s just for the grown ups) so come along, bring friends,  family, kids, the nieghbours, the boss, anyone you want.

Cutting Day

Last week’s cutting day was a great success so we will be sure to run several more in the future. If you would like to have a go next time then talk to one of the team next time you’re in.

If you don’t want to have a go, or you’re worried that you won’t be good enough, just watch these videos of our students.

Holiday Kamai

With the summer holidays quickly approching we’re launching a holiday competition for the Juniors & Cadets.

The competition is simple; while you’re on holiday take a picture of yourself in kamai. Whoever has the best kamai, in the most unusual location will win a BIG prize.
