NorthWest Shintaido Exchange Exam Results

On August 21, 2004, NorthWest Shintaido Exchange offered summer examinations. Examiners were Ito Sensei, and Lee Seaman Sensei.

Shintaido examinations provide an opportunity for assessment of our practice by several very senior instructors. Exams are rigorous and challenging, and it is quite common for a practitioner to repeat the same exam several times before advancing to the next level.

We celebrate the commitment and courage of all examinees, who spend long hours in preparation and then demonstrate their form in front of the examiners and the audience.

Two historical articles added

I've added to new articles that cover some of the history of Shotokai karate and touch on the development of Shintaido to our links page.

The first is a The beginnings of Shotokai and Shotokan: A brief overview by Master Mitsusuke Harada. The second page of the article refers to the development of Sogo Budo and Shintaido.

The other article is Interview with Mr. Tomoji Miyamoto from Canada Shotokan. This interview discusses memories of Egami Sensei and also touches on Shintaido.

I found these articles in a post by Mogens Gallardo on the Shotokai.com message forums.
