Here's an interesting piece of Okinawan History. A lot of the old Karate Masters were closely associated with the Okinawan (Ryukyuan) Royal Family. The last king of Okinawa was King Shō Tai who was forced to abdicate in 1879 by Emperor Meiji. After that his line became Marquis (or Kazoku) under the Japanese Peerage. The last Marquis Shō was Shō Hiroshi as the Peerage system was abolished at the end of World War II in 1947. His son and the current Heir to the Okinawan Royal Family is Shō Mamoru, 67, a businessman who spends his time between Tokyo and Naha. This is one of the rare photos of him.

Kinetic Fighting Protective skills in action...

"Two youths started a fight at my local shopping centre today. Security were fighting a losing battle trying to separate and control them, and as I was running in, one of them produced a knife. I managed a Kinetic IA and takedown, into High Cross Domination. A fellow off-duty officer then jumped in and we were able to maintain control until security, then ultimately more police, helped us out. I’m only at Tan Belt level [in KEF–IC], but this stuff works!”

It's always nice to kick off a week with good feedback — thanks to KEF student and officer Constable McKinnon for the report.

Karate training tonight has been cancelled with the flooding in the Redlands. We are flooded in at home, and some water has made it into the Dojo as well. Thanks to Ray for barricading where the water was getting in.

Back at training last night with Kagami Biraki and a few Covid-19 conditions...


COVID-19 Notice: After the Premier's Advice this morning, the Lockdown will lift at 6pm this evening, so Kagami Biraki will proceed, but there is also now a 10-day masks at indoor sports areas requirement, meaning anyone attending training tonight will need to wear a mask. Please ensure that you do. The mask requirement will be in place until January 21st as per the Qld Government directive. Great cardio work!


We are scheduled for Kagami Biraki (First Night of Training) at 6:30pm this Monday, but please monitor the lockdown in Brisbane which is due to end at 6pm that night. All going well we'll be at training, but please check the status of the lockdown around 6pm on Monday to be sure there is no extension. Covid Safe principles will be in place for training on the night if the lockdown lifts.
