Australasian Masters... 

Hi to all Judoka

Australasian Masters Games - Team Event

The Australasian Masters Games will be held in Geelong, Victoria on the 27th and 28th February 2009. In addition to individual shiai and kata events there will be a Masters Team Event.

Each Australian State and New Zealand are being asked to encourage as many Masters Judoka as possible to come along - a Master Judoka is a player over the age of 30 years.

Ideally teams will made up using the standard IJF weights and World Masters age categories - however it is likely that a certain amount of amalgamation will be required to make Teams. Using this method the World Masters Championships developed from a competition of 120 Judoka in 1998 to a competition of 1500 judoka in 2008.

All levels of players will be welcome. This is a good opportunity for judoka of all ages and grades to enter a fun tournament where they will get the fairest opportunity possible to compete against their peers.

Masters judo is growing around the world and if this competition is successful it will encourage players from the other Unions to enter in the future - it is worth persuading your friends to train!

Information for the Games can be found at the following site
