Mat Chat - May 2015
Latest News from the Dojang
By SaBomNim Tom
May sees the start of Term 2 at the Dojang with near 100 Little & Big Tigers training at the Dojang each and every week.
It has been just as busy for the Adults with special congratulations to:
- Jayne King & Phillip Hansen - newly presented 1st Dans
- Samuel Hansen - receiving his 2nd Dan
Jayne, Phillip & Samuel were joined by a 16 strong contingent from Hapkido Canberra to attend the 1st Official GHA(Australia) Grading & Seminar - more below.
Saturday 16th May we're holding a Grading for all Big Tigers (7+), Teens & Adults who are interested in Grading. This will be followed by a BBQ at my home at Curtin.
Can everyone (Including those not grading) please come along show your support - then head back to mine for a BBQ. The house is in a quiet street with a gate so dogs are welcome, as well as small children. 
Keep up the good training everyone, I'm really enjoying training with each and every one of you. I only wish there were more hours in the day that I could dedicate to providing more classes and more opportunities to train.
As always, thank you!

GHA Update
Masters, Black Belts & Students who attended the GHA Seminars
It was the weekend for all of us to remember. Over the years the Masters and Chief Instructors of Eagle Martial Arts, Strive Hapkido, Hapkido Canberra and Instructors from the Gold Coast have stayed connected through all the politics and drama. 
Finally we were all together to officially launch the Global Hapkido Association (Australia). And what a start, we had over 20 people grading from white belt to 2nd Dan. Followed by a series of seminars conducted by the Masters. It was a long and full filling weekend with decisions about the direction of our Association and where to next.
More news will come out over the coming months as we finalise details and seek out new Dojangs to join. But the overwhelming message is that we're all here to stay and 2015 will be a year to remember.
The next GHA Grading & Event will be in Canberra in November.
Women's Self Defence Course
On Saturday 23 May we're holding the next Women's Self Defence Seminar. Looks like we'll have a special guest instructor coming to show us a little something new and develop some of the skills we have already practices. We already have 9 people registered and we're limiting the numbers to 20 - so don't miss out.  


Price: $60 p/person, $100 p/pair 
Parents of current students & Current Students Free
SAVE THE DATE - Saturday 28 November
