Melbourne 2023

We also have some details of the Melbourne seminar scheduled for 14/15/16 April 2023.

Friday and Sunday are Kenkyukai members only sessions, with Friday for Kobudo and Karate Gradings.

The Saturday 15 April seminar is open to all.

The schedule arises from our observations of the most recent Melbourne seminar, and the differing familiarity we saw in participants. It was a great seminar,  with huge numbers. It's hard for the newer participants to catch up with Sensei's fundamentals, and concentrating on those participants for a day will provide better value.

Melbourne Seminar is fast approaching

 It seems like a good idea to post again about the Melbourne seminar. We posted ages ago, when it was first planned, and it's still on. Sensei Pete Keogh says he's filled it up, there will be around 100 people there, it will be an awesome event with so much energy the Australians put into everything.

 Sensei Ken Erridge from the UK is reported to be attending, so that will be a huge drawcard.
