"You are not finished when you lose. You are finished when you quit."
Hanshi Masaru Shintani


Hello Everyone,

The National Master Shintani Memorial Karate Tournament has been a long standing proud event which commemorates everything Sensei Shintani gave to this organization.

The National Tournament Planning Committee would like to welcome everyone this year to the National Tournament and Shintani Symposium. This week long event will involves socials, events and of course karate! The National Tournament every year has always been a very special event for me personally - this was Sensei's tournament. This will be our second year in expanding this event to a week long symposium.  I hope you are able to attend! 

Few other items to note:
  • Is your passbook updated with a 2019 sticker? If not, ask your Sensei! This is your official membership to the SWKKF.
  • Every year more and more programs are added to the SWKKF curriculum (from SWKKF self-defense, to Shindo, to Instructor clinics, to Judging/Training clinics.... and the list goes on and on). If you are interested in learning more, or perhaps hosting a clinic, club heads feel free to reach out to me to discuss. Do not wait for us to approach you -approach us! We are here to assist.
In Harmony,
