FW: New Year’s Eve Keiko at Kenshikan

Dear VKR Kendo Delegates,

There will be an End Of Year Kendo training session at Kenshikan on Monday 31/12/2018 – New Year’s Eve – as per last year.

The dojo will open at 10:30pm and then training will start before a small pause just before midnight to allow the participants to have a celebratory drink to usher in 2019 and then training will continue for about 45 minutes or so.

After training has concluded, participants are welcome to remain to have a bite to eat and drinks as per last year….or should I say this year? Therefore people attending this event are encouraged to bring food, drinks, dessert to share with everyone. We hope you can make it!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
