The second part of 2019 was very busy with trips to Okinawa for the 40th anniversary of the founding of the International Okinawa Gojuryu Karatedo Federation (IOGKF). Two trips to Canberra, one to attend the annual Australasian Martial Arts Hall of Fame and one to train with Sensei Terauchi at the Australian Okinawan Goju Ryu Karatedo Federation (AOGKF) National Gasshuku and 7th annual AOGKF tournament.
The training in Okinawa was from 29 July to the 4 August 2019 and due to the large number who attended the training was held in two separate venues. The event finished with the World Masters Demonstration where top karate masters from around the world put on an excellent event.

Little did we know that in 2020 that we would not be training face to face due to COVID 19 but catching up on ZOOM.
Keep well and safe
