Information

Pamphlets prepared by the US Shorinji Kempo Federation were distributed to all attendees who kindly donated during the 2017 Shorinji Kempo World Taikai in California, held on July 30, 2017 at the San Mateo County Event Center.

 

Due to a production error on the part of the WSKO Secretariat, the names of some participants were not included in the pamphlet. We deeply regret this omission, especially in light of the rigorous training of all participants, many of whom travelled great distances to attend the Taikai. The WSKO sincerely apologizes for this mistake.

Please find a corrected list of participants attached.

Regarding the Synchronized Terror Attacks in Paris, France

We would like to offer our sincerest condolences for those who lost their lives as a result of the synchronized terror attacks in central Paris, France on November 13th.
We have received a report that, at present, none of the kenshi of the France Federation were harmed. However, we express our deepest regret that such a great number of sinless individuals passed away.
We pray that the grief of the bereaved family members and other related individuals of the deceased will be relieved as soon as possible.

We will be undergoing a renewal of the WSKO website to enrich its contents.  Recently, we have begun to receive a great number of branch reports to be published on the website, and the contents of these reports are quite long.  Therefore, we made the following changes to be a standard for publishing reports on the website.

•    We will prioritize reports that include events at the federation, regional, and multi-branch levels.  (We may ask you to publish reports of individual branches on your federation and branch websites.)
•    The length of reports must be no longer than 300 words, or if in Japanese, no longer than 600 characters.
•    The WSKO Secretariat will select pictures for publishing on the website.
