Our first tournament of the year will be the Padded Contact tournament on the 3rd of March. It's VERY soon, so you'll have to get signed up as soon as possible. We also have the option for Junior Contact for the 11-17 year olds who might be interested in testing their mettle just a little bit harder. Speak to your instructor for more information. See the attached flier for more information.
The IFK Australia Committee have agreed that we will provide a subsidy to suitably qualified members who are 4th kyu or higher and 16 years or older to go to the abovenamed WORLD TOURNAMENT and participate in the CAMP.
Some conditions will apply, such as required length of training after your return, participation in all events and fundraising, and giving seminars about the things you learnt at the camp. If you are 16-17 years old and a brown belt, you could enter in the Junior Division of the tournament too.
