On Saturday February 22, 2020, Kendo Ontario will hold a Shinpan / Referee Seminar led by David Mori Sensei at the University of Toronto – Upper Gym starting at 1:00 p.m. All players 3rd Dan and Up are invited to participate. This seminar is beneficial for all members who compete as well as referee at Kendo tournaments.
We invite all 2 Dan Kendo players to come out and participate as players to improve their own shiai skills. The seminar will be followed by Godo Keiko and is expected to finish before 5:00 p.m.
As there will be several upcoming events that require Shinpan / Referee (University of Toronto Sr. Tournament on Sat., March 14 and JCCC Jr. Tournament on Sun., April 26), we encourage all qualified members to participate.
A seminar fee of $10 per shinpan participant to support Kendo Ontario is requested. Shiai players (2nd Dan) and members participating in the Godokeiko only do not pay this fee.
All participants are reminded to bring their own Shinpan-ki (pair of red and white Shinpan flags) if possible and read and bring a copy of the FIK (International Kendo Federation) booklet – The Regulations of Kendo Shiai and Shinpan.
*** Kendo Ontario will be selling copies of the booklet @ $15. Quantities are limited. Please indicate in the registration form.
We ask that a club / dojo representative send the completed registration form (available online here) to [email protected] by Wed., Feb. 12, 2020 (end of day).
