Provincial & Regional Representatives and Dojo Head Instructors

I am hoping everyone is doing well and adapting to these uncertain times. Many clubs have been closed due to the Covid 19 restrictions and this has created difficulty in training , however a great deal of our members have been taking advantage of the great Zoom classes offered by various instructors across Canada.

Summer is now upon us and we are fast approaching the upcoming fiscal year for 2020-2021.

Due to the uncertainty as I mentioned,many are wondering where we go from here. A fair question and I assure you a great deal of thought and work has been put into a plan & guideline to go forward with the SWKKF members.

The Senate will be holding Shintani Karate Town Hall Zoom meetings on July 15th & August 12th , both at 7:00pm EST

I would like everyone to join in on these Zoom Shintani Karate Town Hall Meetings to hopefully provide some guidance into the reopening stages of your clubs and how to take advantage of the virtual events offered.

A Link to the meeting and an agenda will be forwarded to you later next week.


See you then,

Sensei Denis
