Re: Dedication of Kamiza

I am confused by all the terminology. Ours is called Kamiza, so I presume it is a Kamiza we want. We do not practice Shinto, but if this is where Kamiza comes from then no one in the dojo would have a problem honoring the tradition.

My sensei said that if we dedicate the Kamiza as it is supposed to be done, maybe Osensei will smile on our dojo. I am pretty sure none of us expects signs and wonders following the ceremony, neither will it improve our technique.

My question was: is there is recognised ceremony/prayer for dedication of a Kamiza, and if there is can someone please direct me to a source of info on the subject.

P.S. I couldn't find a Shinto priest near where I am.
