  • seminar report from Yuge sensei:
    "Thank you to all SCKF sensei and kenshi who attended the seminar. It was very good event however, it would have been better if more 3 dan's from SCKF were able to attend. I know we are all busy, but as I mentioned at the last SCKF referee seminar, this would have been a good followup exercise. With regards to concussion, harassment, abuse issues, these are very important and I hope to have some information posted on the AUSKF website in the near future. However, many at the seminar expressed that the information was very valuable especially when presented at a 'live' event rather than reading materials..perhaps we can plan an event for SCKF to discuss these issues at a future date as all sensei need to be aware of these issues."
