SWKKF TEAM


The inaugural Shintani Team was selected personally by Hanshi Shintani in 1997. Hanshi Shintani’s goal was to challenge and grow our Karateka through International training opportunities and tournaments while displaying to the world the values of our organization. The team paved the way for future teams to train and compete with top coaches, highly ranked athletes and delegates from around the world - including Canada, the United States, Northern Africa, Europe and Japan.

The vision of the Shintani Team is to represent the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation (SWKKF) at tournaments and workshops throughout Canada and around the world while upholding Hanshi Shintani’s values of humility and kindness. Previous Shintani teams have been successful in competition but, more importantly, have been complimented on their professionalism and sportsmanship in and out of the ring.

Our goal moving into the future with the 2019 - 2020 Shintani Team is to maintain our ties to the past and develop confident individuals who compete to win, with specific goals for each competition. For the year ahead the Shintani Team will maintain a one-year term commitment for Developmental, Junior and Senior members in kata and kumite.
