Congratulations to Cindy Cassils who was presented with the 2014 Clint McFarland Memorial Award.
The McFarland award is from the Saskatchewan Provincial Wado Kai Karate Tournament. It was started after the accidental work place death of Clint McFarland and is orignally sponsored by his family.
After each year’s tournament, the Senseis can each nominate one person whom they feel is deserving of the award. The nominees do not have to be the winners or top finishers of a division but should best demonstrate the combined characteristics of skill, spirit, and humility that Sensei Shintani believed in so strongly. The recipient is essentially someone whom the Senseis would like to introduce to Sensei Shintani.
