October newsletter – AsiaFest special

The Kudo Nationals are on Saturday – so no regular classes! The weigh in is at 11am – don’t be late!!

Sobukan demonstrations are on the 4th, 10th and 11th of October.

Please meet at the martial arts stage in the Japan section of AsiaFest before the start times listed below. If you are unable to collect your tickets before participation, I can leave your ticket/name at the Bartell Street entrance/box office. Tickets are available for the entire festival, so please don’t lose them!

For those competing in Kumite or Kudo, please ensure that you have your own mouth guard and groin guard. If you have your own NHG mask, gloves and shin pads, please also bring them, although some of the latter will be available at the event.

Good luck to all competitors and participants and a big thank you to all those who have donated time, vehicles, mats, equipment etc.

We might all be too tired on Sunday night, but it might be nice to go out for a meal and a few drinks after we have transported the mats and other equipment back to my place. Lets play that by ear…
