2018 MWKF Summer Camp
& Promotion Test
University of Illinois at Chicago
Chicago, Illinois
August 10-12, 2018

I am happy to announce this year’s MWKF Summer Camp will be held at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) from August 10 to 12, 2018.

We will have Shigeki Yamanaka sensei Hanshi 8 Dan, Shigeki Saito sensei Kyoshi 8 Dan both from Saitama Prefecture and Aki Suzuki sensei Kyoshi 7 Dan from Tokyo.

Depending on number of female participants, I would like to have Women’s seminar led by Suzuki sensei somewhere during the summer camp.

Fee schedule is different from previous years. Please click the image below to access the registration form.













Registration deadline is June 30, however, the number of dorm rooms are limited so do not wait until the last minute and register ASAP. For those people that are not using the dorm, also please sign up ASAP so I can get an idea of head count to plan the lunch and the banquet.

If you have any question, please feel free to email me.

Best regards,

Greetings from Kansas City Kendo Club

We are excited to announce a Remember the Date for this year’s Annual Taikai. We’ve secured the date of October 20th for the Taikai and the 21st for Testing.
