Dear Karate-ka and Parents,

Well so much has been happening over the last few weeks I am not sure where to start, from
the Aussie Open to even some students even winning dance competitions 😉

Congratulations to all our students and supporters that competed and represented our dojo so well in Sydney at the Aussie Opens. Rick sensei and myself felt extremally proud of each and every one of you. There was once again great karate spirit was shown and a real “never give up attitude” displayed. Keep going guys!

Also HUGE congratulations to Dannica Starkey and Caitlin Corbett for their great performance in New Zealand at the Oceania Championships. Dannica coming home with Bronze!!!

Upcoming events:
• 26th & 27th May QKA Invitationals Championships – Brisbane
• 21st June – Kyu grading by invitation only.
• 7th & 8th July – Karate Winter Training Camp “Gasshuku” for all students TBC
• 4th & 5th August – Nationals in Coloundra
• 8th September – Mike Dukas Shihan (8th Dan) seminar. Venue TBC

It has been brought to my attention that there is often a communication gap between or before events. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. As in karate, we are always looking to improve our dojo. The management will be brain-storming to find the best solutions. Should you have any ideas that could help us improve, please feel free to share with us.

Keep training hard and remember to enjoy your karate. The harder you train, the more you enjoy. 😊
