A weekend seminar was held at Lismore Dojo. Shihan Rick Cunningham travelled up from Sydney to conduct the seminar. Students from Sensei Mark McFadden’s Lismore Dojo, Sensei Jon Ellis’s Ballina Dojo and Sempai Rob James’s Aspley Dojo were all in attendance.
On the Saturday, Shihan Cunningham walked students through applications from the Kyokushin Pinan katas. This was a great opportunity for the North Coast and Brisbane students to enrich their bunkai knowledge bank, particularly those who have not previously attended the seminars held in Sydney, like the August Bunkai & Tameshiwari Seminar.
On the Sunday, the focus shifted to Kobudo.
After the Kobudo, the Little Lions did some Karate training followed by a lunch.
Thanks go to Shihan Cunningham for leading the weekend, and to Sensei Mark and Sensei Jon for hosting. Sempai Rob James will be returning the favour, hosting a seminar at Aspley Dojo in November.
