This past weekend March 8, 9 10, 2019 saw members of the Canadian Chito-ryu Association’s Renshi and Kyoshi group gathered together for a weekend of advanced training. Members from across the country came together, for a weekend long endeavour, to share their knowledge and expertise and sharpen their skill all under the guidance of Hanshi Higashi at Honbu Dojo in Toronto.  Promotions where also one of the highlights where five members (who were successful in their grading at the last national grading in November 2018) received their belts recognizing their achievement and according them the title of Renshi.

Members from Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland were in attendance where training took place at the Headquarters for the Canadian Chito-Ryu Association (Higashi School of Karate, 89 Curlew Dr. Toronto, Ont)
