Please review your records and submit the names of members eligible for promotion to Sho Dan and above to me as soon as possible. We want no one to miss the opportunity to advance as they should.

Prices for the seminar and tournament will be determined soon. Rest assured they will be reasonable.  I am sending this notice so that everyone can make travel plans.

We are all part of the GKK family. As family members, we all have ownership in how the family is maintained.  We need to see representatives from all regions for this to be a successful venture!

I am looking forward to seeing all you in May. Please feel free to contact me bye-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or call me at: (419) 304-1666.
