Courses 2013

Stripes 1 to 1

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th November 2013

Course Notes » Program » Photos »

Conducted by Master Evan Davidson 8th dan and Master Paul McPhail 8th dan
with Special Guest Cliff Harvey

Cliff will speak after dinner on Saturday beveling.
Topic: Fueling Metabolic Efficiency

“Is everything you’ve been told about eating for health and performance wrong!?”

Join Cliff Harvey as he brings you a punchy, informative, and sometimes challenging seminar exploring the newest frontiers of eating for health and performance. This seminar will challenge some of the existing dogma of nutrition and provide scientific evidence for how we should really eat for optimal health and performance.

Cliff will speak about the key concepts of ‘fueling metabolic efficiency’ including:

  • The myth of ‘calories in, calories out’
  • What really fuels the body and mind (it’s not what you may think)
  • Why eating the one thing you’ve been told NOT to eat could help you to lose fat, gain muscle and have better energy
  • Why what you eat is more important than how much
  • The myths and realities of meal timing
  • Simple guidelines on what to eat and what to avoid!
  • BONUS: How to lose fat and gain muscle with...or without exercise...

  • Some of the traditional stretches (eg front / rear rising kicks, side squats)
  • Partner exercises for perception of energy flow
  • Challenging discussion on "could you kill someone?"

Two step Sparring session with Master McPhail

Teaser for next year's 2 step sparring syllabus and each pair asked to demonstrate their own ideas.

Self Defence session with Mr Salton

  • Master McPhail outlined the new self defence syllabus due for introduction mid 2014.
  • Mr Salton taught release and counter attack techniques from basic grabs.
  • Discussion on passive stance and deescalating strategies due to be included in the syllabus.
  • Stripes participants - please email Master McPhail for access to the video of this session.

Systems & Process or talk by Mr Banicevich

Mr Banicevich re-capped his talk given at the recent Instructor Update courses for those who couldn't attend. This included:

  • Mini-kids lesson planning and term structure for gradings
  • Mini-kid attendance plan and grading procedure
  • Processes for club and how we can improve them (small group brain storming)

Special Guest Presentation by Cliff Harvey: Fueling Metabolic Efficiency

  • See talk headings above. Stripes participants - please email Master McPhail for access to the audio of this session.

Senior patterns by Master McPhail

  • 3rd dan patterns in detail
  • 4th & 5th dan patterns in one group with Master McPhail, 6th & 7 dan with Master Davidson.


Stripes offers the opportunity to openly discuss ideas or concerns. This year discussions included:

  • IDO and possible development into a more formalised mentor programme
  • Formalising the substitute instructor idea, where you can request a substitute instructor if you are sick or absent from training.
  • "Think Big" Mr Craig Hannah started discussion on how the database can be expanded and developed and offered his assistance to do so. Members of the Board present are to take this further.
  • Instructors Conference and senior dan grading set for first weekend of November in Rotorua (combined with Stripes).
  • Discussion on the National tournament numbers and how to improve. Idea of splitting into "international" and "non-International" divisions to encourage more participation.
  • Use of protective gear at club level and at gradings from 2014. Sparring at gradings follows general tournament rule guidelines such as no low kicks or attacks to illegal targets. (save that for self defence).
  • Swing too far towards tournaments? How can we do more on the art side?
  • Red / Blue / black sparring gear. A general feeling that black gear should be allowed at all events to save cost to the members. Please give feedback to Mr Brown if you want a change to the current rules.
  • Proposed grading fee re-structure. Please give your feedback to your RD for a response back to the Board.
