JKR Newsletter: April 2017

50th JKRi is just around the corner! Registration closes on May 1, 2017.  No crying on May 2nd about how you didn’t make the deadline. Sensei Mina will drink your tears and gain the superpowers she’s always wanted.

The weekend is gearing up to be an exciting event. It will be full of great knowledge to take back to your dojos to share with your students.  Come with an open mind, be ready to sweat, and go home invigorated!



JKR International is very proud to announce Sensei Michiko Matsumoto of JKR Northern California – Eishinkan Dojo has been appointed executive assistant to Kaicho Yamazaki. She will serve as the translator for official documents and communication to and from JKR Japan Headquarters.

This is an incredible responsibility, but Sensei Michiko has already proven invaluable with her overnight translations of our JKR standards and protocol for Soke Konishi.

Congratulations, Sensei Michiko!
