Two taikais are coming up!! If you’re interested in participating then please inform a committee member by 5pm 30th of June.
Nagae & Otsuka Taikais
Saturday The 14th July 2011 @ Kenshikan
It is planned to hold the Nagae Taikai during the morning and the Otsuka Taikai in the afternoon.
The format of the Nagae Taikai will be the same as last year. It will be an individuals based Taikai for senior Kendoka. 3rd Dan and above Kendoka are invited to apply. Competitors must register their interest prior to the Taikai via their club. Kendoka that have competed in the Nagae Taikai won’t be eligible to compete in the Otsuka Taikai.
As per each year, the Otsuka Taikai will be a teams based Taikai where each team will comprise 3 Kendoka. The teams will be picked from three pools of names. The pools of names will be based on grades. The teams will be picked on the day. Kendoka who are 2nd Dan and below are invited to compete in the Otsuka Taikai.
If there are not enough Kendoka to form a sufficient number of teams, Kendoka that have competed in the Nagae Taikai will be eligible to compete in the Otsuka Taikai.
Senior Kendoka are also requested to Shinpan during both Taikais if possible.
