Tournament Background:
On behalf of the Washington State Karate-Do Federation it is a pleasure to invite you to receive the highest level training and certification as an official with the USA Karate program, National Governing Body under the United States Olympic Committee. We are honored to have Sensei Cedric Barksdale, USA Karate Referee Committee, WFK Referee A and Judge A, teaching both kata and kumite courses open to all officials, athletes, coaches and interested karate-ka on February 10, 2018 at Highline College (Pavilion), 2400 S. 240th Street, Des Moines WA 98198. We are especially eager to have non-officials present to learn first-hand and to take back to your dojo the information that will be provided.

For those already certified this is an opportunity to reach a new level of certification, renew your certification or just raise your level of confidence and proficiency. Currently individual can be certified up to Kumite Referee C or Kata Judge C. If you are below this level you should register for a license upgrade (vs. a renewal). Regardless, everyone is highly encouraged to participate. The training/certification course is extremely valuable in preparing for a number of local tournaments as well as for National competitions. Additionally, the 2018 WFK rule changes will also be review and will be included in the on-site written exam. The WSKF Qualifier is scheduled the following day on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at Highline College.

Additionally Casey Mill will be offering a regional coaches seminar from 10a - noon.

Lunch will be provided by the WSKF for registering for any of the seminars.
