29th Iaido and 20th Jodo Seminar and Championships 2020 CANCELLED

Announcement made: 15th March 2020

In light of the most recent announcement by the Prime Minister of Australia regarding mandatory quarantine for international travellers to Australia, and the increasing number of infections of COVID-19 within our national borders, the Australian Iaido Jodo Seminar and Championships (AIJSC) 2020 scheduled for late May have been cancelled. As with the previous announcement regarding the cancellation of the 45th Australian Kendo Championships, the Australian Kendo Renmei’s (AKR) considerations are the same, the health and safety of its members and society at large.

Any registration and/or grading monies paid to the AKR by individuals will be fully refunded. Members will be informed of the mechanics and timeline which will be worked out between the AKR and the relevant boards.

It is envisaged that the next AIJSC will be held next year again in Queensland in 2021. This is under discussion at present and may change. Members will be informed once a decision is made.

The AKR apologises for any inconvenience caused by this decision, but it has been taken with due consideration of the health and safety of its members, their families, friends and close associates.

Stay safe.

 

Regards,

Stylianos (Stilts) Polichroniadis

President
