Australian Martial Arts Hall of Fame event 2009

This year the Australian Martial Arts Hall of Fame (AMAHOF) annual event is coming to Melbourne!

For your diaries:
7-9 August 2009

Bayview Eden Hotel
6 Queens Road
Melbourne VIC 3004
More details will be forthcoming from the AMAHOF website later in the year.

This event offers an opportunity to meet with martial artists from all around Australia (and often beyond) and to honor exceptional achievement in the martial arts.

I had meant to attend in 2007 and 2008, but each time other responsibilities conspired to stop me. Last year my master, Kancho Barry Bradshaw, was honored as the first person to be awarded Legend status (a new category in 2008) by AMAHOF, so I was extra-sorry to miss.

It will be the first time for AMAHOF in Melbourne and I will definitely be attending. It is being organized by Kancho Bradshaw -- we are hosting! -- so expect an outstanding event and awards ceremony.

See you in August!
