Good job to everyone who participated in the Melita workshop on the weekend. Those who attended had an excellent self-defence workshop in the morning and an excellent workshop in the afternoon. Thanks to Sensei Alby and his club for hosting this awesome event.
DUFFLE BAGS/BACKPACKS ARE IN!! YAY!!!! We’ll be handing the bags out at class this week.
We are hot into “Tournament Season” now. The next two events are nearby and are great events. Members from these clubs also participate in our tournament, so it would be great to return the favour and attend theirs.
Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9, 2016 – Saskatoon/Warman Tournament – “Living Skies Annual Wado Kai Karate Clinic and Tournament” – This event is held in Warman at the Legends Centre. Sensei Denis (8th Dan; Shintani Federation President) and Sensei Sanford Dewitt (5th Dan; National Team Kata Coach) will be presenting the clinic on the Friday night. The tournament portion will take place on Saturday.
Saturday, April 30, 2016 – Manitoba Provincial Wado Kai Karate Tournament – Boissevain, MB – With the Manitoba provincial being so close this year, it would be great if we could send many members to this event. This is Sensei Jeff Gervin’s club.
All of the Shintani events rely heavily on participation from not only their local members, but on visiting members from nearby clubs as well. Support our karate family, improve your skills, and meet new people! Attend on of the many clinics and tournaments sponsored by the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation.
See you at the dojo!
