I also want to take this chance to remind you about the changes to the upcoming Referee Seminar which will take place on 5th – 6th February in Brussels.

In particular, I would like to draw your attention to the Referee Preselection and Referee Candidates lists (attached).Only the candidates on the Referee Candidates list should attend the Referee Seminar. The persons on the Preselection list are already selected as Referees for the EKC and should therefore not attend the Referee Seminar. You may want to remove the pre-selected Referees from your registration in the EKF System so that you can generate a new invoice. Please also inform us if there are any changes.

A reduced number of fighters have also been selected based on the final entry and with the agreement of those countries who had nominated fighters.

There will be no dan examination at the Referee Seminar, but we expect to hold an examination at the EKC. Please note that the examination may take place on the Monday after the Championships.

Warm regards,

Kathryn Cassidy, Secretary General
European Kendo Federation (EKF)
