Kenny Koala

recently the family and i went to Dreamworld for the day, its filled with lots o excitement and some very scary rides and is quite the assault on the senses

I mananged to catch up with Kenny Koala who is a prominent figure at Dreamworld and was anxious to find out more about what dreamworld might have to offer the budo community.

I was surprised to learn that Kenny himself is an accomplished martial artist, having first got involved at dreamworld through stunt work .

He explained like many dojo we feel it is important to offer a complete entertainment experience for visitors, it needs to be exciting and there must be the every present sense of danger while everyone knows that it is completely safe. We want people to come back so its important to change what we do regularly and move with the needs of the people. I think there is lots to learn from Kenny
