SEUSKF Annual Championship Tournament and Promotion
 The 2014 SEUSKF Championship will be hosted by the Memphis Kendo dojo.
 Here is the announcement email from Rogers Gossett:
 Dear Sensei, Dojo Representatives, and fellow Kenshi,

 Memphis is very excited to be hosting the 25th Annual SEUSKF Tournament and Promotional (through 4.dan) this year on the weekend of October 18-19, 2014!

 After the normal bumps in the road of trying to organize things, we are finally able to provide the above-attached PDF file/Registration Packet for the event.

Please pass it along! 

 One piece of information that is not in the registration packet — Depending on how many participants register for the tournament, it may be necessary to eliminate the Senior Division due to time constraints with the gym.  We hope this will not be necessary, but we will send out a notification to everyone as soon as possible if it is necessary to take that step.

 Registration deadline for all materials is Tuesday, September 30th, 2014.

For any questions/clarifications (even corrections to unseen errors or omissions), please contact both of us.


Please download the registration packet HERE
Also, remember that beginning in Fall of 2015 the SEUSKF will have a requirement for those that are 3 Dan and testing for 4 Dan to have proof of shimpan experience. Although it is still a year from taking effect now is the time to start your preparation. If you are 3 Dan and expect to test in 2015 fro 4 dan you should be getting your shimpan experience recorded.
