The beginning of March of this year O’Sensei Shimabuku requested that I host the 2015 IWKA World Championships. I have secured a site and plans are underway. The event weekend is 15 months away.
THE DATES ARE: Thursday, August 6th, Friday, August 7th and Saturday, August 8th, 2015. THE LOCATION IS: The Westin Princeton @ Forrestal Village – Princeton, New Jersey
THE THEME FOR THIS TOURNAMENT IS: UNITING THE PAST – PRESENT & FUTURE WITH THE VISION SO THE “ONE HEART WAY” MAY CONTINUE – UNITED IN HEART, FOCUSING THE SPIRIT AND THE DREAM OF MASTER TATSUO SHIMABUKU AND HIS SON, MASTER KICHIRO SHIMABUKU.
Information is being finalized and will be distributed and on my website www.isshin-ryu.com
I look forward to see all Isshin-ryu karateka at the event weekend.
