3rd & 4th November 2007
[4th dans and above only]
The 2007 Stripes 1 to 1 seminar was a great success with all present
voting to make it an annual event one again. The seminar featured the
introduction of the new ITFNZ Self Defence Syllabus taught by Mr Steve
Pellow. We were also lucky to have an "eye opening" session
and Athena Thompson (see
below) - a big thank you to them!
Thanks to all our "Stripes" for their support. We are already in planning
for next year!
Congratulations to Mr Andrew Salton who was promoted
to the position of Senior Examiner at Stripes 1 to 1.

A new self defence syllabus is being designed by
Mr Steve Pellow and Master Paul McPhail to achieve the following
- To give the students and Instructors clear guidelines
of the scope and purpose of our self defence syllabus, and the
techniques to be taught
- To make the syllabus consistent in terms
of the attacks used and the response by the defender - To teach
basic technique of “Outward Wrist Turn” and “Inward
Wrist Turn” and apply these techniques to the majority
of self defence scenarios.
- To make the syllabus easy to learn and teach
and all grade levels
- Give ITFNZ members practical guidelines
for situation awareness, general safety in the home, car and
in public. Also to provide basic information about the law as
it pertains to self defence in New Zealand.
All Stripes including the ITFNZ Technical Committee will be updated
on the progress of the syllabus and taught the techniques involved.
AND ANNOUNCING THIS YEAR'S SPECIAL GUESTS:
Phil and Athena Thompson

By popular demand - it is back on a again this year...the most anticipated
event of the year for 4th dans and above....the forth STRIPES 1
to 1. Why is it called Stripes 1 to 1? Well it is a seminar for
stripes (4th dans and above) from 1 pm Saturday till 1 pm Sunday. And it
includes 1 to 1 tuition with New Zealand's two Masters.
It is again being held at the popular Suncourt Motor Inn, Taupo. Accommodation
at the Suncourt is very limited and will be allocated on a first in first
served basis. Get your application forms in immediately to secure your
place. Once the Suncourt is full you will need to find your own accommodation.
ITFNZ is again subsidizing the event, making it affordable for our seniors
to update their skills and re-new acquaintances.
