Fwd: 17 WKC Australian Team Brochure

Dear AKR members,

The Australian Kendo Team has put together a WKC brochure to showcase the history of Australian involvement in the World Kendo Championships from the 1st WKC in 1970 to now. This brochure also introduces the coaches, managers and members of the current Australian Kendo Team who will be travelling to Korea to compete at the 17th World Kendo Championships on 14-16 September 2018.

Brochure Download – High Resolution (File size = 65 Mb) | Low Resolution (4 Mb).

The brochure for the 17th World Kendo Championships was temporarily taken down for the AKR National Council to deliberate on the content of the brochure. Since then, the AKR National Council have a majority agreement (by the casing of votes) that the content is appropriate. I thank the Council for its time and timely response to this question.

On behalf of the AKR, I would like to apologise for any confusion, inconvenience and/or stress that the posting, taking down and reposting of the brochure may have caused.
