FUNDING APPROVED FOR MT GRAVATT KARATE-DO CLUB
Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta, today confirmed a Turnbull Coalition Government commitment of $185,000 announced last year for the Australian Academy of Martial Arts Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Club (AAMA).

“I’m pleased to announce that the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development has approved this funding for AAMA’s new dojo,” Mr Vasta said today.

“This grant has enabled AAMA to secure a site at Mt Gravatt for their new dojo. It’s a great boost for the club and the community. People of all ages will now have better access to karate and other health and wellness programs offered by AAMA.”

AAMA will use the Federal Community Development Grant to refurbish and further develop the former Girl Guides Hut in Carson Lane at 1873 Logan Road, Upper Mt Gravatt.

President of AAMA, Dr Lyndon Kurth said the club was delighted to have its application accepted.

“As a volunteer operated, not-for-profit, community sports club, the AAMA Karate Club has been fortunate to have the support of three levels of government: Councillor Steven Huang, State parliamentarian Ian Walker, and Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta,” Dr Kurth said.

“When the new dojo is constructed on land leased from the Brisbane City Council, the operating costs of the Club will be significantly lower. The club plans to lower its tuition fees and make its programs more accessible to the community.”

This year AAMA will be celebrating its 45th year as part of the Mt Gravatt, Wishart and Mansfield community.
