Our Newest Shodans
Congratulations to Mary Tuccitto and Matthew Naraine for passing their Shodan (1st degree black belt) in Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do. The test, held Saturday September 25 at 7pm, was very well attended by family, friends, fellow students and many of the Renseikan Dojo black belts. This was our first black belt test in our new location. Thanks to everyone who took the time to come out and support Mary and Matthew.Pictures to follow as they come in.
New Shinden Stand
Thank you very much Thinh Tran for making our new dojo stand. It holds Nagamine Sensei and Shioda Sensei's pictures during the classes. Great job. We really appreciate it.
First Canadian Jodo Taikai
The first ever Canadian Jodo Taikai (demonstration tournament) was held on Sunday August 8th at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto. We expect to have more of these, perhaps two a year. The event coincided with a Canadian Kendo Federation(CKF) Iaido seminar and taikai.
We are very proud and pleased to announce that this first ever event was won by Renseikan's own Joe Vallejo. The round-robin tournament was conducted by the CKF under judges Sensei Kim Taylor, Sensei Ward Jardine and Sensei Don Croft. We are hopeful we will have another taikai during the annual Fall CKF Jodo Seminar. Again Congratulations to Joe Vallejo for his first place win.
