AKR has recently approved its 2021 Anti-Doping Policy which comes into effect on 1 January 2021.
The AKR anti-doping policy is the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy and can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia website.
All members, participants and non-participants in the sport of Kendo Iaido and Jodo are bound by these rules. This includes athletes, support personnel and employees whose employment contracts enables this.
It is important that all members understand their obligations under the new policy. Changes include a new anti-doping rule violation of retaliation, a category of athletes that is lower-level and flexibility related to sanctioning for certain levels of athletes/participants.
