Koinonia is the annual national conference of the Christian Black Belt Association and Shiho Karano Kai International. It has become a gathering place for martial artists and their families from across the country since its humble beginnings in May of 1990 at Ciotti Manor in Herman, Pennsylvania. The Christian Black Belt Association was founded in 1970 to provide mentoring, support, and training to assist Christian instructors in ministry. The Shiho Karano Kai International was founded in 1982 to meet the need of those martial artists seeking fellowship and training but who did not wish to be a part of the CBBA. Attendees are able to participate in eight (8) seminars during the weekend.
Koinonia also includes daily worship led by Conference Pastor, Fran Pultro from King’s Highway Calvary Chapel as well as activities for the non-martial artist in the family including a Ladies Tea for wives, mothers and daughters of martial artists. Participants have their choice of accommodations from lodge to cabin style housing. The food is terrific and the training atmosphere is uplifting and inspiring.
Registration information is listed on the next page as well as costs and housing choices. General questions may be directed to Matthew Riedner, Conference Director (765) 444-9154 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
