As some of you know, a beginner’s tournament organised by UMKC was recently being discussed among the VKR. Well, good news! There was enough interest from the clubs and so the beginner’s tournament is going ahead! Here is some tournament info from UMKC:
Entries are now called for the Beginners’ Tournament to be held on Sunday 14 March at the West Stadium at the Melbourne University Sports Union (Melbourne Sports University).
Entry fee is $10 per person.
The Dojo will be open from 1.00pm with the competition to start at 2.00pm
This is an Individual Tournament limited to adult VKR (&AKR) members who commenced Kendo training after 1 January 2009. There will be separate Men’s and Women’s divisions, unless fewer than six entries are received for the Women’s Division.
If you are interested in competing please email the committee using the contact form. We strongly encourage you guys to go and have a shot at it! All competitors will have had done Kendo for the same amount of time as you, so you can be certain it’ll be a fair competition. And it’ll be fun! The more shiai experience, the better! 😀
