End of an era and new beginnings

Sensei Tim, our Nedlands instructor is off to Melbourne to live and study for a year. Many of you will be aware that this has necessitated the closure of the Nedlands dojo after more than 22 continuous years of operation.

The final lesson at Nedlands is scheduled at the JC Smith Pavilion at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 21 November 2007. All students of the Academy, past and present, are invited to attend the lesson to honour, and say a special farewell to, a floor that has soaked up generations of sweat and spirit.

The Nedlands dojo will be sadly missed, however we will now be able to focus on our full-time facility in Bayswater. In other words, the end of one era marks the beginning of another. We will shortly be announcing the long-overdue official opening ceremony of the recently completed Honbu dojo.

This is a very important event and we dearly hope to see you ALL at the final Nedlands lesson: I'm sure it will mean as much to many of you as it does to me. Your attendance will be greatly appreciated

Shihan Dan
