6) There will be a 40 minute informal keiko session held at the Kenshikan on both Friday 23 and Monday 26 from 6:00pm attended by the visitors. Everyone is welcome to attend, but due to the size of the venue, participation will be limited to the first 40 people. Once that number is exceeded we would have to regrettably deny participation to latecomers.

We hope that you all can enjoy the seminar and gain a beneficial experience from it.

Shinpan Seminar, Sun 11 Mar, 1:00 Kenshikan

To All Victorian Kendo Members

This is a reminder about the Shinpan Seminar to be conducted by Yano Sensei on Sunday 11 March at the Kenshikan starting at 1:00 pm.

This Seminar will be an opportunity for Yano Sensei to address issues which were discussed at the FIK Shinpan Seminar in Korea late last year, plus a brush-up for those shinpan who are likely to be called upon at the 2018 Australian Kendo Championships.

All practicing shinpan should attend.

I take this opportunity to remind you of the Kyu Grading on Sun 4 March and the Dan Grading on Sunday 17 March.

List of Panel members, stewards etc will be sent out soon.
