These events will be held on the beautiful campus of the Fanshawe College, in the city of London, Ontario. The year 2017 will also mark the 50 year anniversary of Hanshi Masayuki Hisataka’s arrival in Canada in 1967, where he introduced Shorinjiryu and Koshiki Karatedo in Canada. This milestone will be celebrated at the farewell banquette held after the tournament on July 30th 2017.

In 2014, the Canadian Koshiki Karatedo Association, to great success, hosted the 2014 Koshiki Karate World Cup in London, Ontario, on the beautiful campus of the University Of Western Ontario. Having over 6 hours of television coverage and a wonderful facility, which provided great accommodations and excellent meals at an affordable cost. This 2017 World Championships plans to be even more spectacular, truly showcasing the best and greatest of Koshiki Super Karate.
