Pre-VKC Shinpan Briefing

To all VKR Kendo Members:

Pre-VKC Shinpan Briefing

The 2017 Pre-VKC Shinpan Briefing will be conducted by Yano Sensei on Sunday 6 August 1:00-3:00pm at the Kenshikan.

This briefing is aimed at those who will shinpan at the VKC – potentially all VKR Kendo Members 3 Dan and above.

Shinpan rules and procedures will be reviewed, plus discussion of some new competition guidelines, including how the Kata competition is judged.

Hakama and keikogi to be worn.

As this will be basically a briefing and Q & A session, only 2 or 3 shiaisha will be required. This will also be an opportunity for those people to listen to the shinpan instructions.

Could attending shinpan and potential shiaisha please send their names to me at

I look forward to seeing you all there.


Yakov Macak
Chairperson, VKTC
