Please note that due to the weigh-in times for this competition on Saturday, there will be no normal club training on this Saturday 22nd September.

  • According to the schedule, the first block of age categories is Junior Boys and Girls, Cadet Men and Women and Special Needs, and these will commence at 8.30am. Athletes in these divisions should be on the warm-up mat at 7.45am on Sunday.
  • Thanks to all the many Budokanis who have stepped up to volunteer to support the Sydney International, including some of the athletes mentioned above who are unable to compete.  This shows great spirit to support NSW’s premier competition event of the year. Wishing that all our athletes achieve their goals this weekend – all the best.   
  • There is no Kata at the competition this year as the OJU Kata Course was held last week with the OJU competition last weekend (16th Sept). 3 Budokan athletes competed in the OJU Kata Competition:
  • Andras Koltai won a Silver in both Senior Nage-No-Kata and Katame-No-Kata. Bernhard and Bianca Tandean partnered up for the Junior Nage-No-Kata where they won a Gold medal. They were unplaced in Senior Ju-No-Kata. A great effort by our Kata exponents.
