Grading results


Today was the year's first grading, for 6th kyu up to 2nd kyu. Nanseikan had five members testing. Congratulations to Richard Rutter and Geoffrey Weber who achieved their 4th kyu, and Stephanie Kelso and Eli Robey who were awarded their 2nd kyu. Well done to all.
Nanseikan's first dan grades can't be far away!

Autumn


Welcome back to term 2. This term there are not many scheduled events so that means we can focus on developing our kendo. As the days get shorter and colder, it gets more difficult to stay motivated. However this is the time when your effort counts the most. This term we will be working on building the level of energy that we can bring to our kendo every time we train.

See you in the dojo!
