National Training Seminar

Shido Kan Kanji

NTS 2015

Held one of the last weekends of July, this seminar brings together Shido-kan practitioners from all over the world.

The typical seminar includes a number of training sessions, the Friendship Party, the Awards Banquet, the Kata Competition and Blackbelt testing. On special anniversaries, a demonstration will be held at the Wharton Center. It is a wonderful time to share fellowship with other karateka, to learn new techniques, improve the ones we already know and to make new friends. Here are some of the highlights over the past fifteen years.
