Sei Do Kai Presents:

Canadian Kendo Federation

2021 Annual CKF
Fall International Jodo Seminar and Grading

November 19-21

In an effort to aid the growth of Jodo within Canada and especially within Ontario, the Sei Do Kai is presenting the CKF Fall Jodo seminar and grading.
Since the Jodo community within Canada and Ontario is a small one, we are asking for everyone's support in promoting and attending this clinic over three days in November.

CKF International Fall Jodo Seminar and Grading

This is a jodo seminar open to anyone. Beginners are welcome, you do not have to be a member of the CKF to attend the seminar.

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.

Covid-19 Vaccination Acknowledgement

Due to Provincial Regulations, we will require a scan of a valid Vaccination Passport on arrival. Failing that, please send or bring a printout of proof of your second shot, received no later than 2 weeks prior to the event (on or before Nov.5).
