Kangeiko 2022

Each year ISKF of Montana gives out two “Spirit Awards.” This award is given to one adult and one child.
The ”Spirit Award” selection is voted on by fellow karate-ka. They vote for the person who inspired, motivated, had the energy and sprit to keep training, and inspired other karate-ka to keep going as well. It’s all about the “Heart!!”
This year’s spirit awards go to:
Elly (Lilly) Anderson
Brian Ek

to our award winners and


to our yellow belt family for making it to every class!!

Most of you put in 10 hours of training this week, young and old, smiling the whole time. Job well done.
Keep your skills and mind sharp – “Keep Training”.


  • Regular classes resume on Monday, January 3rd.
  • ISKF membership fees are due by Janary 31st. These fees allow you to participate in ISKF sponsored events, including our local testings. Brown belts; this is a good time to check if you have the ISKF passport, we can order one for you at this time.
Kangeiko = Cold Training. Every January we come together for one week in the cold of winter and train daily. This is a tradition in Shotokan. It is a time we reset our minds and spirit, and dive into our trainings with renewed excitement for the year.
  • Kangeiko training is Monday, January 17th through Friday, January 21st; 5:30 – 7:30pm. All ages/belts welcome. Please bring water bottles, snacks, and tennis shoes.
  • There will be 3 small breaks during kangeiko training. We want you all to train every day for the entire time, but understand this may not fit your schedule. Please come when you can, and let Sensei or a Senpai know if you need to leave early that day.
As a gentle reminder; please do not come to class if you are sick or feeling “off,” masks are always optional, we have several hand/foot washing stations and ask that you use them before and after class, and distancing of 8′ will be asked of those not in the same cohorts/families.
If you have any questions please ask Sensei Tina or myself.
Domo arigato.

Our very own Mountain States Chief Instructor Mark Tarrant will be the instructor for this camp.

I have attached the flyer / registration form for the camp to this link.  Space is limited, so please get the word out to your students!!  The registration deadline is July 10th.

If you plan on attending please let Sensei Tina know ASAP.
They are also planning to provide Zoom classes for a per class fee, but are finalizing this.
Further information about Zoom will be provided at a later date, this will be a great opportunity for ISKF Montana to train along virtually with our region so mark your calendar!


Dojo is closed today 02/02/2021 due to a waterleak, see you Thrusday.

ISKF of Montana wants you to be healthy so we’re sending a reminder and some precautions we’re taking so we can remain open during this time.

1. Do not come to the dojo if you or your family members are sick.

2. Please wash your hands before and after training.

3. Cough and sneeze into arm (wash gi before next training if you do) and keep hands away from face.

4. Do not come to class if you are uncomfortable in crowds. We understand. Self train at home, message us for ideas!

5. The dojo has been disinfected, and will be after each day of training.

Stay healthy out there!!!!!
