OSU! Thanks to all the Queenslanders and QLD government, the current restrictions are to end on this Friday at 4pm. That means we can start practising techniques as usual from the evening classes on Friday. Adults demonstration is now scheduled on Saturday 28th 1pm.

We can recommence children's class from this Saturday 21st. We hope many children will return this Saturday and then we can have a rehearsal as well as training. If it seems to be ok, we will hold children's demonstration on Saturday 28th. Senior group: 9.30am-10.00am rehearsal, 10.00am-10.30am demonstration and awarding. Junior group: 10.30am-11.00am rehearsal, 11.00am-11.30am demonstration and awarding.

We are looking forward to having our students back on the mats and new students starting from this Friday. We thank you deeply for your kind understanding and continuous support for the dojo. OSU!

OSU!Great news for Brisbane people! The dojo will be open from tomorrow as usual, yet we humbly ask you to wear your masks on even during training for two weeks. However, you can remove it when you feel unsafe. We shall accept this challenge as a true marital art training like samurai used to do, training under difficult and severe conditions. Only for two weeks, we shall enjoy the challenge!

As of our annual demonstraion, we are allowed to have up to 50 people in the dojo, according to "1 person per 2m2, up to a maximum of 50" rule. We will postpone children's demonstration to Saturday 21st and devide it in two sessions; senior group 9:30am rehearsal and 10:00am demo, junior group 10:30 rehearsal and 11:00am demo. In this way, we can have parents to watch their children's performance. Adults demonstration is still scheduled on Saturday 21st from 1pm but we shall consult with our students.

Thank you very much for your ongoing kind support and understanding for the dojo.We are looking forward to seeing our students who can come out of lockdown back on the mats from tomorrow. We thank any others who need to be still in quarantine for your patience and devotion to the community. OSU!
