2016 International Kyudo Federation American Seminar

posted Jan 29, 2016, 4:12 PM by Haitham Shammaa   [ updated Aug 6, 2016, 10:08 PM ]


I am pleased to invite you all to the 2016 International Kyudo Federation American Seminar. The 3-day general seminar will take place July 18th - 20th, with a rank examination on July 21st. We will once again be hosting the seminar at Carleton College in Northfield, MN Please see the attached letter of invitation and official announcements from the IKYF for the details. All seminar information is also available on our website at: http://www.mnkyudo.org/2016-ikyf-seminar/

The cost for this 3-day seminar will be $410. While the planning committee wanted to keep the fee the same as last year, the IKYF insisted on raising the price to account for some of their costs.

We are also trying to see if we can arrange for an enteki exhibition event, but it will depend on weather and if we can get the college to let us use the fields behind the Rec Center to do this (so far, so good!). Stay tuned for more info about that!

Blackwell-sensei and Yoshiko-sensei, please forward this on to the groups you work with in other countries.

As more information becomes available, we will be posting update to our website and our MNKR Facebook page.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those from outside the MNKR who volunteered to be on the 2016 Seminar Planning Committee, they have already been tremendously helpful and I look forward to continuing to work with them in the upcoming months.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of you in Minnesota this July!
