Budokan intends to support this event, the last of the State Opens for 2018 and the first time Perth has hosted this event. We are aware that a few Budokan athletes have already expressed interest.  We will place a sheet at the club where you can note your interest and then we will be in a better position to coordinate accommodation etc. An info package for this event is attached.

INTERNATIONAL UPDATE - KYLE McINDOE

Kyle recently had to undergo an operation to remove his appendix which came as a complete surprise. Whilst his recovery is on track, unfortunately he will not be cleared in time to prepare and compete in the Junior World Championships on the 17th to 21st October in Nassau, Bahamas. This is very disappointing for him (and us) but we are confident that he will be back on the competition stage again as soon as he can.
