The grading fees will be sent to those who register their students prior to the event.

Saturday morning prior to training. Grading fees will be collected separately, but also at registration.
Instructors please note, the focus of the weekend is for Blackbelt tuition, so we can continue to
advance our own karate practise, so please only bring Brown Belts who are grading at the gasshuku.
This event may be postponed or cancelled should the government implement COVID restrictions that
impact on its ability to be held it can’t take place.
