“DREAMM Tour” – a Dream Come True – Kempo Genbu Ryu Tournament Sydney 19th March 2023

Our Dojo DREAMM Tour was just that, a dream come true….


The privileges of travel and competition after a wait period of 4 years due to COVID being realised and enjoyed by everyone in the wonderful city of Sydney…


Our first experiences of an “International level” tournament proving to be a next level challenge for all competing students in both kata and sparring…


We had a great tournament day with much new learnings, new understandings and new friendships being accumulated across the group as the excitement of watching the introductory activities and individual events of the tournament unfolded….


The spirit of “BUDO” and “FRIENDSHIP” strong and evident all day long with all competitors showing much respect and spirit as they proudly represented their Dojo’s, their styles, and their countries….(Australia, Japan and New Zealand)


Many impressive students demonstrated their amazing kata and sparring abilities across many age groups and martial arts styles…


Kempo Genbu Ryu Karate, Shidokan Karate, Heiseikan Karate, Goju Ryu Karate, Kyokushinkai Karate and more….


A real tribute to all Dojo’s, Dojo Heads and Instructors….Well done and Congratulations to everyone….


We were all so very proud of all our SEIDO Karate Lower Hutt Dojo students for giving their utmost in such a very challenging new tournament format and environment…


Our little group of 25 competing students competed hard indeed…
