This year will be a very fun and challenging year in kendo. Once again the students from the Japan Sports Science University (Nittaidai) will be visiting, as will Chiba sensei. The Australian Kendo Championships will be held in Melbourne over the Queen's Birthday weekend in June, and then later in the year the Victorian Championships. Other regular competitions will include the Otsuka Memorial Taikai at Kenshikan, and the Mumeishi 3s at Mumeishi, where Nanseikan last year fielded two very successful teams: well done guys!
In our regular training I will be returning to teach the class. This year we will be focusing on increasing the skill level of the most experienced Nanseikan members, as well as helping newer members reach that first milestone of wearing complete bogu. Caleb will also be returning to assist for at least the first part of the year, as he waits to hear about his application to teach in Japan.
