A message from ISKF headquarters:

"We really want to try to get a good showing this year for Okazaki Shihan since the East Coast did not have a good participation rate this year at Master Camp. Also, to get together with all of our East Coast friends is always a good excuse. Okazaki Shihan really values Fall Camp to be with all of you, please do the same for him.

We hope to see all of you and your members at Fall Camp this year.

Thank you,
ISKF Headquarters"
