8th SKIF International Seminar has been Cancelled

8th SKIF International Seminar in 2021 has been Cancelled


Please note that after careful consideration, SKIF GHQ has made the decision to cancel the upcoming 8th SKIF International Seminar due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The memorial service that was planned for the March 14th 2021 for Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa will proceed for Domestic Members on that date. As we are unable to specify if International Members will be permitted entry to Japan at that time, we will be paying special consideration to hold a ceremony for international members at the SKIF International Seminar in 2022 for any people who could not attend in 2021.

We understand how disappointing this is for all members and we appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. In keeping with the teaching and philosophy of Soke, he gave us the health and spirit through Karatedo so that we can overcome this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you in the near future to train together again. Oss!
