In early Fall of 2014, a group of dedicated Budoka thought of the idea of establishing a Meifu Shinkage Ryu group in Saskatchewan Canada. Shortly after, Dr. Chris de Feijter invited Otsuka-Sensei to teach the first Meifu Shinkage Ryu Seminar in Canada in March 2015. Otsuka-sensei returned to Canada in October 2015 by invitation of the Manitoba Keikokai. The third seminar was held in Saskatchewan in October of 2016. An Intense Meifu Shinkage Ryu Masterclass occured in April 2017. For July 2017, a 4 day seminar has been scheduled.
