2012 8th Black Belt Conference - Banff

Sensei Alex is heading to the 8th Black Belt Conference in Banff, Canada next week with a very large notebook, an empty memory card, and a thick winter jacket (brrrr).

The conference is hosted by IKO Canada and shihan Stuart Corrigal and will be held at the Banff Centre in the “Great Canadian Rocky Mountains”. This year will be an exciting one with participants and instructors from Japan, South Africa, Australia, USA, Eastern & Central Canada, Russia, Great Britain, and Hungary.

Attendees will have the privilege of training with shihan Kenny Uytenbogaardt (South Africa), shihan Koichi Kawabata (Japan), and shihan Katsuhito Gorai (USA) on this 3-day conference in picturesque Banff.
