June 7th – 10th, 2018 – Miyagi Chojun Festival (MCF)
The Miyagi Chojun Festival (MCF) is an I.O.G.K.F. annual event that brings karate students from all countries and of all levels together for a period of time for a series of karate seminars, and social activites. This event is part of a series of worldwide events conducted by the IOGKF bringing technical excellence to willing students, regardless of belt rank. The Japanese term for this type of event is ‘gasshuku’. The idea behind this term is similar to a training camp, where a group comes together and trains together. A gasshuku is a fantastic opportunity to upgrade your skills and train with some of the best instructors that the IOGKF offers.
Event details, schedule, and registration forms can be found on the I.O.G.K.F Canada MCF mini-site.
