CKF International Fall Jodo Seminar and Grading Nov 17-19, 2017

WHO: Instructors are Mitsuo Shiiya sensei, hanshi 8dan from Tokyo and past head of the ZNKR jodo section, plus Genji Kurogo, hanshi 8dan from Hiroshima and current head of the ZNKR jodo section.

WHAT/WHEN: This is a jodo seminar and grading open to anyone. Beginners are welcome, you do not have to be a member of the CKF.

The Grading:

This is a CKF grading so Canadians will have to join the CKF ahead of time and apply to grade through the web-based grading system when applications are opened. These will be open soon. The CKF does not allow registration for grading "on the day" so please sign up ahead of time. Check the CKF website at for further details about how to apply for the grading. Yes, this suggests that anyone who has started jodo this September in the various dojo can probably apply for ikkyu for this grading. The requirements for ikkyu are the first three kihon and the katas number 1, 2, and 4 both sides.

For those who wish to grade from outside Canada, the application process is as per FIK rules. You apply through your national kendo federation president who sends a request to the CKF president. Again, details can be found on the CKF website at the same web page.

The grading is up to and including 3dan. All those grading are expected to attend the seminar.

The Seminar:

Friday, 7:30pm to 9:30pm. This ZNKR jodo session is open to all.
Those holding 3dan and up are especially encouraged to attend this session if they wish to tune up for their next grading.

Saturday, ZNKR Jodo Seminar 10:00am to 4:00pm
Grading. 4:00pm to 5:30pm

We will be reserving space at a local restaurant for Saturday evening. Food/drink NOT included in the seminar fee.
