Notice of postponement of the National 5th Dan Kendo Grading

The 5th Dan Kendo Grading to be held in September has been postponed. The notice can be found in a document attached in this email.

The reasons for the postponement are detailed inside the notice. (Kendo Board – National Kendo 5 Dan Grading Examination Notice of Postponement.pdf)


Approved VKR Rules of Association

On 20 June 2021, new Rules of Association were endorsed by a Special General Meeting of the VKR (see attached and available here: VKR Rules of Association) Consumer Affairs Victoria has now approved these Rules and as a result they are now in effect.

As per the new rules, the former ‘delegates’ meeting will be called the ‘State Council’ and will comprise a delegate from each VKR Club and members of the VKR Executive. Chairs of relevant subcommittees will also be invited to attend.
The first State Council meeting will be on 29 August 2021 at 3pm. An Agenda and Papers will be distributed prior to the meeting.

The VKR Executive is proposing to hold State Council meetings every 3 months generally on the last Sunday of the month (subject to other events that may be happening around the time).


Postponement of the IJC in September (Jodo)

Due to widespread COVID restrictions on interstate travel the Jodo board in the interest of safety have decided to postpone the event scheduled for the 27 September.

The Jodo board is trying to reschedule to 30th October – 1st Nov 2021, in the event that this date is also not achievable we will try for 20th Nov – 22nd Nov 2021.

Understandably this makes it hard to plan travel and there is always the potential for a snap lockdown. We are doing the best we can to ensure the event goes on with as many states as possible able to travel.
