21 and 22 April Seminar and Grading Brisbane

Wynnum PCYC
Cnr Alexander & McDonald Streets
Lota Q 4179

DATES: 21st and 22nd of April
TIMES: 9 am - 4 pm both days

It is the intention of the QKR to provide a grading opportunity in both Kendo and Iaido
to Dan level on the Sunday. This will depend
on both availability of grading panel members as well as number of candidates.
Therefore, it is important that I receive advice from dojo leaders urgently concerning
seminar attendees AND grading candidates so that we can organise the seminar accordingly.

As this seminar will be used to select the final team structure for both kyu and dan,
it is important that anyone intending to go to Melbourne to compete
in the 2007 Australian Kendo Championships, to attend this seminar.
I appreciate that it may be difficult for some members to attend so in such cases
I need people to clearly indicate to me by email their intention to go to Melbourne.

Shigeoka Sensei is planning to come out for the Championships and come to
Melbourne with us. He will also be staying in Brisbane for
about 10 days after.

** December Brisbane - Grading and Seminar -
8 and 9 December **

December Seminar.
The seminar will be held on the 8th and 9th of December at Mt Gravatt High School. 

A grading will be provided on the Sunday for Kendo only unless and Iaido grade 
is required. 
As the national Championships are being held in January on the Gold Coast, 
it is not expected that a grade will be offered at this seminar. 
I will confirm this with all iaido instructors.

It will however be an excellent opportunity for all those iaidoka planning to 
attend the championships to brush up on shiai and general technique.

As usual, anyone planning to attempt a grade is expected to attend the seminar 
on the Saturday if at all possible.

Warm regards to all
