Leanne and I are now 3 weeks in from having our second vaccine jab. So according to the vaccine info, our T-Cells are now primed and ready to do battle. Initially, I was sceptical about the vaccines as I didnt want to be a guinea pig. However, to date, there have been an amazing 5.5 billion jabs worldwide with few adverse effects and deaths (Leanne and I are ok, so that is good!). 

What pushed us to get the jab was the outbreak in NSW and the realisation that Victoria would probably be next (and it was). Running a martial art school means we have close contact with many people so I doubt if we will be able to avoid the virus forever. It was time to get the jab...

So far:
Victoria has had 23,966 infections with 823 deaths
NSW has had 39,121 infections with 207 deaths

So, NSW has had 15,165 MORE infections but 616 LESS deaths. 
What is different?? 
The Delta variant and Vaccination!!
The majority of Victorias cases/deaths were from last year with the original virus and no vaccines. While the majority of the NSW cases have been from the last few months. This implies the Delta variant is more infectious BUT the vaccine has reduced the number of people having dire consequences.

Last year the virus got into Victorian aged care and ripped through like wildfire. In NSW the virus also made its way into aged care but due to the high vaccine rate in the elderly the deaths have been very few. 

At our dojo, all of our instructors are fully vaccinated and most of our senior students have either been vaccinated or are planning to do so. 

To our friends and students that have not been vaccinated. I suggest you consider doing so. From all reports, the virus is here to stay for many years to come, just like influenza. For those that decide not to be vaccinated, I respect your decision and hope your contact with the virus is mild.

Sadly, our Local Government Area (Hume) has moved up to be the top hotspot for Victoria so for those in this area please keep an eye on the exposure sites and get tested ASAP if you have any symptoms.

Leanne has just received her 6th Dan and Kyoshi title in Jujutsu from the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (DNBK) in Japan. Leanne is is the only female in Australia to have attained the title of Kyoshi from DNBK. Leanne was recommended for the title by the President of DNBK after she participated in an intense two week elite seminar which studied four different classical Jujutsu styles in Japan and demonstrated in front of DNBK Honbu instructors many times over the past 15 years. Leanne is a role model for girls and women of all ages as she began her training as a young teenager through motherhood and beyond. We are very grateful for her continued input.

We also have certifications for Jason Gray and Damian Wilson. Jason has achieved his 6th Dan in Karatedo and runs his Karate dojo in Castlemaine. Damian has achieved his Shodan in Karatedo and teaches at his Karate dojo in Abbotsford. Damian is also a member of our CMAC dojo.

We will hold an official presentation ceremony at our annual Kagami Biraki (dojo opening) on Sunday 10th January.

Our classes have stopped and our dojo is closed. But Leanne and I just put the finishing touches on our COVID-19 project. We have created a green screen photographic and video studio.

We have boom arms attached to the roof beams to catch overhead shots which will be used when taking video of throws. Our mezzanine is excellent for absorbing impact from throws but has vibrations that make video unwatchable. The overhead boom arms will be great as the vibration from throws will not interfere with the video.

Now all the hard work is done. It only takes about 30min to set up or pack up.
