Dear Sensei and Kenshi:

The AUSKF Competition Committee (Referee Committee), would like to announce the following seminar coming to your regional area.

AUSKF Zone 2 Referee Seminar (Chicago)
June 11 & 12, 2016
(Sat: 9:30 am to 5pm, Sun: 8:30am to 12:30pm)

This seminar is important as it is in preparation for the upcoming Jr. Nationals and future AUSKF and regional tournament events. Besides referee and kendo instructions, it will also feature discussion about AUSKF insurance and due diligence by dojo to ensure safe practice and tournament environments for kendo and other forms of instruction.

The seminar will concentrate on those who are 3dan to 6dan, however, 1-2dan and higher kyu may attend although they may not get to referee. We may ask some to be shiaisha, which is a great opportunity to also learn about kendo. Everyone must bring kendo dogu.
Everyone must register if planning to attend.

There is a non-refundable registration fee of $10 for the 2-days. There are also bento and dinner party (Sat.) options. Everyone is invited to attend the dinner party.

Note: You do not have to attend both days, but it is highly recommended. If you cannot make this seminar, there will be other Zone seminars in 2017 which you may attend or repeat. We will be having a seminar in 2017 (TBA) in the New Jersey/New York area, as well as in the Southeast, Pacific North, and Southwest regions.

All 7-dan sensei (and higher) will assist as instructors, however we ask that they register as well. (After they register, we will waive their registration and bento fees.)

To register, please click on the following link:

A dojo rep may also register on-line for sensei and members if others are not comfortable with registering “on-line”. I will send a confirmation list to all federations by June 7th, for distribution to individual dojo, this will let them know who signed up.

For those dojo who wish to register via a “classic” form (spreadsheet), I have also attached a spreadsheet, however the spreadsheet must be returned to me by June 3rd. Please return sheet or for questions, email to:

Thank you and hope to see you at the seminar!

Y. Onitsuka
