AJJA Seminar in Sydney

Posted by Australian Jujitsu on November 14, 2010 at 7:37 PM

The Australian Ju Jitsu Association's annual national seminar was held in Sydney once more, on the 23 & 24 October.

The Judo Hall at Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush, is a great venue that allows for the large group of jujitsu students and instructors to break up into ranked groups, and learn techniques from other clubs around Australia.

As well as teaching two jujitsu sessions, Sensei Howard Quick also gave a Shinkendo demonstration on the Sunday, explaining and showing test cutting to more than 90 jujitsuka. Two Shinkendo students, Jasmine Quick and Scott Cunningham, also gave an example of our training kata.
