Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are still two cups at my table.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Striking Distance Documentary

Shot over four years, Striking distance tells the story of girls who compete in open styles tournaments across Australia.

We need your generous support to finish this inspirational and surprising story about how martial arts can totally change the way a girl feels about herself.

Donations can be made via Documentary Australia Foundation ;

We have had a few hiccups of late, and need $30,000AUD to finish and share this work. It has been a tough road to the finish line, and your support means so much to these amazing young women.

This is an 11 minute snippet of a 90 minute story - from towards the end of the film. We hope it brings a smile - you can see our sizzle reel with more of the girls on this same vimeo channel.

At the end of the 2017 competition year the girls decide they have had enough of being treated second best. They organize their own competition & in April 2018 create history with the first All Girls Open Styles tournament in Australia.
I couldn't embed the video, but it may be watched here.
