In an effort to aid the growth of Jodo within Canada and expecially within Ontario, the Sei Do Kai is presenting the CKF Fall Jodo seminar and grading.
Since the Jodo community within Canada and Ontario is a small one, we are asking for everyone's support in promoting and attending this 15 hour clinic over three days in November.

CKF International Fall Jodo Seminar and Grading Nov 11-13, 2016
WHO: Instructors are Daniel Chabaud, 7dan jodo and Corinne Marie Dit Moisson 7dan jodo both from France.
WHAT/WHEN: This is a jodo seminar and grading open to anyone. Beginners are welcome, you do not have to be a member of the CKF.
This is a CKF grading so Canadians will have to join the CKF ahead of time and apply to grade through the web-based grading system when applications are opened. These will be open soon. The CKF does not allow registration for grading "on the day" so please sign up ahead of time. Check the CKF website at http://kendo-canada.com/forms.html for further details about how to apply for the grading. Yes, this suggests that anyone who has started jodo this September in the various dojo can probably apply for ikkyu for this grading. The requirements are the first three kihon and the first three kata both sides.
For those who wish to grade from outside Canada, the application process is as per FIK rules. You apply through your national kendo federation president who sends a request to the CKF president. Again, details can be found on the CKF website at the same web page.
While national gradings of ikkyu and up require pre-registration with the CKF, we will be offering nikkyu gradings to those who get the urge to grade "on the day". The requirements are the first three kihon and three kata (1, 2, and 4), jo side only.
The grading is up to and including 3dan. All those grading are expected to attend the seminar.
Friday November 11, 5:30pm to 9pm. This session is open to all. Senior class: those holding 3dan and up are especially encouraged to attend this session if they wish to tune up for their next grading.
Saturday Nov 12 Seminar 9:00am to 4:00pm
Grading. 4:00pm to 5:30pm
We will be reserving space at a local restaurant for Saturday evening. Food/drink NOT included in the seminar fee.
Sunday Nov 13 9:00am to 2:00pm Seminar.
Grading fees (except Nikyu) will be paid to the CKF directly when you register online.
The seminar will be held at Mentor College, 40 Forest Avenue, Mississauga Ontario. It is near the corner of Hurontario and Lakeshore.
If you wish to take public transport, the Port Credit Go station is 700 meters from the dojo.
Inexpensive rooms can be had nearby at the Green Acres hotel.
We will not be providing lunch, pack your own or we will be posting a list of local restaurants.
