In 1969, Hanshi Howard Lipman began his study of the martial arts, at age twenty-seven.
He practiced Shotokan Karate for two years, then from 1971 to 2019 he has trained – and continues to – in Kyokushin Karate. Hanshi Howard has devoted 48 years to Kyokushin and 50 years overall to the study of the martial arts, and continues to teach to this day.
We congratulate Hanshi Howard on this incredible milestone.
The first KIMAA seminar of the year will be held at Annangrove Dojo, Sydney, on the weekend of 23-24 March. The seminar will cover grading requirements, kata, Bunkai and fight training. For senior students there will be two sessions covering Refereeing and corner judging for tournaments.
On Saturday, training will run 9 am – 4 pm and on Sunday 9 am – 3 pm. On both days, please arrive no later than 8.30 to change and warm-up so we can start on time promptly.
For those who train in the Kids classes rather than with the Adults, your session will just be 9 am – 1 pm on the Sunday. If you’re unsure which category your child is in, please ask your instructor.
Lunch is included. You will need to bring: towel, gloves, shin pads, mouth guard, groin guard, shoes suitable for outdoor training, hat, sun screen, water and plenty of Kyokushin spirit.
Please download the appropriate form below, print, fill out and return to your instructor with payment ASAP. If you have any queries, please contact Hanshi Howard Lipman or Shihan Rick Cunningham at the contact information through those links.
