2018 AOGKF Black Belt Gasshuku & Grading

On May 19, 2018 the AOGKF held it's biggest ever Black belt Gasshuku at our Woden Valley Dojo. Under the leadership of Sensei Joe Roses, Sensei Kevin Nash and Sensei David Lambert, the Black belt Gasshuku featured all grades training, individualised group sessions, lectures/presentations, pre-grading clinic, the grading tests and of course the grading presentation dinner. Over 60 senior grades were present for the training with the focus on Kata and applications.

The world is coming to AOGKF

In October 2021 our organisation, AOGKF, will host the 2021 IOGKF World Gasshuku and World Kata tournament in Canberra, Australia. This is the equivalent of a country securing the rights to the Olympics or the Fifa World cup. The AOGKF EC has been leading a campaign to secure this event for the last 3 years and can announce we have been successful! Visit the event site at:
