congratulations to all new 5 kyu Nanseikan kendoka!
who successfully attempted 6th and 5th kyu gradings over the last two
weeks! Daniel and Cy both received their 6th kyu, while Steph, Amelia,
Jordan, Rory and Thomas all passed 5th kyu.
I was very happy with those that I saw, especially how carefully
everyone concentrated on the basics of correct dressing, correct
rei and sonkyo, and correct posture at all times. Very well done!
Next week we are back at training as usual, and the week after I
should have the brand new zekken (name covers for tare) for all those
currently in armour.
