Hey brown and black belts training Shotokan around Winnipeg, are you ready for the Shotokan karate league competition being held at the Charleswood Karate club this Saturday, January 28, from 2 to 4 PM?
To find out more about entry requirements, and to register, you can venture over to the Inter-Dojo Shotokan League website. For the Charleswood Karate members you can sign up on the list at the club, ask any black belt for assistance.
To celebrate the successful completion of the first inter-league event in the IDSL, competitors, spectators and Charleswood club members are invited to take part in a potluck dinner, Mexican style!
There is no need to bring a dish, but if you do want to bring one, please bring Mexican!
The Potluck Party starts right after the competion ends. Competitors and all ranks of Charleswood Karate club members are invited to join in on the festivities.
See you at the dojo!

Heijoshin Karate is organizing a karate tournament for brown and black belts who practice Shotokan in Manitoba.
Any Shotokan dojo can participate, regardless of club or affiliation.
Next Tournament: Jan 28, 2012, 2-4p
Hosted by: Charleswood Karate club
The Inter-Dojo Shotokan League (IDSL) is an annual tournament for brown and black belt competitors that takes place over several dates throughout the year, and is open to all Shotokan Karate organizations in Manitoba.
The IDSL season is similar to a season of soccer or hockey and consists of league matches that start in January and end in November of each year.
Competition days are to be held on the last Saturday of the month at a host dojo. Points are tracked throughout the season, and at the end of the year awards are given to the top three competitors in each category.
The IDSL is a fun way for participants to maintain their competitive edge throughout the year. It is also a great way for judges-in-training to improve their skills and gain confidence in their judging ability.
The IDSL is looking for competitors and judges to participate in the first event of the 2012 season on January 28th, 2012 at Charleswood Karate, 5924 Roblin Blvd. If you are interested in signing up, click here for more info!
