Dear VKR/AKR members,

2019 marks the Melbourne University Kendo Club’s 30th year anniversary. Since starting out in 1989, our club has come a long way since thanks to the incredible contributions of all sensei and members – both within the club and from the wider Kendo community. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in celebrating this accomplishment, and the hard work of many who have helped us grow over the years.

We will be holding our annual Muken Taikai on 25th May 2019, followed by a dinner in the evening. For those who have participated in previous years, we have decided to change the format and divisions this year to mark our anniversary event. Please note that the organisers may have to make some changes post-registration depending on numbers.

Individual Events
Junior Kyu Division (UG – 4K; beginners from 2018 will compete in this bracket instead of having a separate division)
Senior Kyu Division (3K – 1K)
Junior Dan Division (1D – 2D)
Senior Dan Division (3D – 5D; 5th Dan will be able to compete in this division this year)
*Champion and runner-up of each division will move on to the next division like in previous years

Team Event
There will be a team division this year amongst different clubs, including the appearance of the ol’ UMKC team! Teams will be sorted after registration, depending on club entries. Please register for individual events first.

A final schedule will be sent out closer to the date, but do expect shinai check-in to start around 10:30am, and run till 5:30pm. There will be a $15 entry fee for each competitor.

The anniversary dinner will be held after the taikai. The following are the details of the dinner;
La Spaghetteria Ristorante
132 Lygon St, Carlton
$40pp which includes pizzas, pasta, dessert & drinks

We would also appreciate if any non-competing members can kindly volunteer their time for shimpan (3D and above) or volunteer duties. Please let your club secretaries know if you would like to compete, volunteer and/or join the dinner.

We look forward to having you at this event!

Regards,
Cheryl Low
Vice-President
