Kendo Ontario – Shinpan Seminar 2020

February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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.

Date:     Saturday February 22, 2020

Time:    1 ~ 5 p.m. (including Godo Keiko)

Site:      Upper Gym, Athletic Centre (Google Maps Link)
University of Toronto
55 Harbord Street, Ontario
M56 2W6

Cost:     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.

Requirements: 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.

Deadline: We ask that a club / dojo representative send the completed registration form (available online here) to info@kendoontario.ca by Wed., Feb. 12, 2020 (end of day).

We look forward to seeing everyone at the seminar.
