At the upcoming seminar you will see a new seminar pre-registration system being introduced.  For this seminar there will be no tickets being issued, SKIF Ireland students will use their current SKIF Ireland Licence with a photo on it for entry to venues.

Dan Applications & Gradings

All Completed Dan Applications including the appropriate Dan Application fee in the form of a cheque / bank draft / postal order / electronic payment must be posted to the SKIF Ireland Treasurers address (Aaron Kenneally, SKIF Ireland Treasurer,15 Delford Drive, Rochestown Road, Douglas Cork City, Ireland) by the 13th October 2013

No Applications will be accepted after this date as all applicants must be vetted to ensure they meet the requirements for their grading and have completed the required number of seminars with the Japanese Instructors. 

Please do not post your SKIF Ireland licence with your application as you will need this for entry to the venues.  You can submit your SKIF Ireland licence on the morning of the grading and it will be returned to you after the grading.  All Junior Dan Applications must be signed by a parent and instructor.  

Please ensure you print your name clearly on all Dan Applications form as these forms will be sent to SKIF Headquarters in Tokyo Japan and will be used to create your SKIF Diploma, if they cannot read your name properly there is a chance your Diploma could have a spelling mistake which cannot be changed afterwards.
