The CKF will be conducting referee seminars this spring to improve the level of officiating across Canada. All kendo practitioners 3 Dan and over are encouraged to attend at least one of the three seminars.

In advance of the seminars, please be sure to review the Kendo Shiai and Shinpan Rules (2017 Edition). Access the digital version here or purchase online here. Please also view this video on the basic level shinpan instruction. The CKF is currently working to provide a translation of this video.
