Sensei Peter Ciolfi Memorial Tournament 2015

Sensei Peter Ciolfi

ciolfiSensei Peter Ciolfi was born in February 3, 1950 in Castropignano, Italy and moved to Canada at an early age.  In his late teens, he started studying Wado Kai Karate under Sensei Shintani and through the years achieved the rank of 6th Dan.  He became one of Sensei Shintani's top students and displayed great character and true karate spirit in all aspects of his life.  Sensei Ciolfi passed away on March 20, 1997, at the young age of 47.

oc seizaMarch 25, 2015 was the 17th annual Sensei Ciolfi Memorial Tournament.  This tournament is always a staple for the Karate Kawartha Lakes group.  It is very well run, and our group always has a lot of fun.  We would like to thank the Welland Martial Arts Center for hosting this great event each year.

The Karate Kawartha Lakes Group made early rise leaving at 5:00 am on Saturday morning.  In all we brought down 17 competitors to the tournament, all of which made me very proud of our group.  Our standings were good, but more importantly, I was very happy with the way our group carried themselves.  You all represented our dojo's very well.

Be sure to congratulate all of the students who attended this tournament, and helped celebrate and remember Sensei Ciolfi.
