Information Bulletin

NEW! The official Information Bulletin is now available. Download the bulletin for all the information about registration and your stay at the official hotels.

Please Note: The name of the competition has been changed to the 7th International Karate-do Goju-kai Association Global Championships. This is to accommodate recent decisions surrounding international Karate competitions.

We hope that this does not cause any undue hardship for participants or visitors to Canada in organizing travel arrangements, and we appreciate your understanding.

Stay and Save Special

Wow! With still over 9 months to go before the Championships the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel is sold out! However there are still rooms available at the Sandman Signature Hotel.

We are currently negotiating with other nearby hotels to get great rates for visiting teams. We will keep people informed as these new hotels and rates become available.

It is no longer required to stay at the Host Hotel (Sheraton) to take advantage of the Stay and Save special. All participants in the tournament will be able to register at the reduced rate regardless of which hotel they are registered to stay.

If you have questions or need more clarification please contact the event organizer for more information.
