Sobukan will open the fully-booked Paper Crane Ball in November to raise money for the Childhood Cancer Association. Our performance will include Japanese drum and flute music and spectacular techniques from Jujutsu and Karate to symbolise the fight against cancer.



We are quickly approaching the end of the year. We usually have a picnic at Himeji Gardens to celebrate. What would you like to do this year?

Kudo Competitions

Kudo yellow belts and above can apply for Australian team selection for the World Cup. If you are interested in competing in the Kudo World Cup in India in February, or at the Arnold Classic in Melbourne in March, it is time to start preparing!
