Dear Instructors, Members and Friends:
I trust you are all well and training hard. Labour Day weekend is a great time for our Shoto Camp.
Although school scheduling conflicts may arise this year for some, traditionally, it is the weekend
before the start of the school year. It is also a great way to get back into training for all who took
summer off. As well, it is a chance to spend time with your family, friends and karate colleagues at
the end of summer karate camp. Most importantly, it is also a time to support your organization and
its programmes. Shoto Camp welcomes all Shotokan karate-ka from beginners to instructors to train
The last time we held our Camp was the year Princess Diana passed away. Thereafter, Bolton Camp
was sold to a church group and was not available. Now, Camp is back by popular demand and our
Camp Instructors, after 29 years in Ontario, and Canada have ‘Come of Age’ and will instruct and
assist instructing you. This is a great break through for all of us and I hope I can count on your
support, which is urgently needed. I want to say a very ‘special thank you’ to Instructors David and
Janice Pyke who are coming from New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to help us out. They
are coming with their students.
It would be great to see as many instructors and students, if not all, from our dojos in: SSM, Echo
Bay, Bruce Mines, Ottawa, Ridgeway, Hamilton, Windsor, Kitchener, Sutton, Bracebridge,
Mississauga, Etobicoke/Scarborough, Rainbow Village/Lucy Maud, Fleming/Thomas L. Wells,
Timberbank, and Toronto.
This year’s camp will feature:
consecutive hour sessions for you to choose from. Thus, you will have the opportunity to
learn the kata(s) and bunkai you do not know.
In closing, this camp will officially launch the beginning of the Ontario Karate College as a karateeducation,
instruction, and certification entity. Thank you for your support and I look forward to
seeing you at Camp White Pine.
Sensei Frank Woon-A-Tai
