Interhigh Gasshuku – call for volunteers

Dear VKR delegates,

Please pass on the message below to your members:


This year will be the fifth annual Interhigh Gasshuku. As with the VKC, a successful gasshuku relies on volunteers to run.

We are looking for people with a current Working With Children Card, who are willing to help out with various background duties (cleaning, gophering, food prep). There is no minimum grade for volunteers, and they will be welcome to take part in the gasshuku, free of charge.

We particularly need a woman with WWCC who is willing to stay overnight and support the female students.

If you are able to help out, please let me know at <>

Thanks in advance for your support.

3rd Inter-University Taikai

Dear VKR members,

Please pass on the message below to your members:

Hi VKR members,

MUKEN will be hosting the 3rd Inter-University Taikai on 9th September, Saturday. This taikai is open to ALL university students from any Kendo club. The purpose of this taikai is to prepare students competing at the Australian University Games (AUG) in September and also to encourage a healthy competitiveness between uni-aged kendoka in Victoria – providing practice not only to shiaisa but also young shimpans.

When: 9th Sept, Saturday 11:30-5pm
Venue: West Stadium, Melbourne University Sports Centre
Cost: $5pp

Registration can be done via this form and payment should be made to our club’s bank account BY 1st September. Please include your name and ‘IUT’ in the transfer description (e.g.; Jeff H IUT).

Commonwealth Bank
Acct name: University of Melbourne Kendo Club
BSB No: 063238
Acct No: 00903203

Those who would like to volunteer for shimpan duty can register here BY 4th September. Shimpans must be shodan and above, and have attended at least one shimpan seminar.

A schedule and format will be sent out closer to the date. However, interested participants should expect to compete in both an individual and team division, similar to the AUG format. Divisions in the AUG are separated by gender and Kyu/Dan grades.

Once again, ANY student of ANY university from ANY club can compete. You will be representing your university instead of club for this taikai.

See you there!
