Update on 2020 Australian Titles
I’d like to update you all on a recent decision we’ve made about our Australian tournament schedule for the remainder of 2020.
Given the ongoing health concerns and the likely hesitation many people may have to travel as a result of the Coronavirus situation, we have decided not to hold a GKR Karate Australian Titles in 2020.
As you know, it has been a tradition of GKR’s for the last 20+ years to hold a National tournament at the end of each year, but the probable lack of interstate entries would have greatly diminished its ‘national’ status.
What we will do instead is push our State Titles back to November (instead of September) and these will become the major end-of-year event on the GKR competition calendar in 2020.
This will give all regions the chance to hold some local tournaments in September/October in the lead up to the November State Champs. Your Regional Instructor will keep you updated regarding this in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your understanding. 😊
