Greetings MBK Member!!

You may or may not know that at the end of March Shinoda Sensei will be leaving Australia to go to China. This will be a big loss to both Melbourne Budokai and Victorian Kendo. He has contributed greatly in his time here and has made many friends.

There will be a farewell Tachikiri Keiko and lunch for Sensei on Sunday the 3rd of March. You are encouraged to attend to show your appreciation. The details of both events are follows:
