g'day! this is Natsu
i'm gonna make a report on the VKC, which was held on Aug 24th Sunday at Ballarat. Me, Eli, Kurt and Jimmy entered VKC which started at an unhuman time(7:30am!! gosh!) and went though all day till well past 7pm.
Jimmy was the first match of the day, fought against Son.N(UMKC) and Ryo.S(MBK), both really good matches, but unfortunately lost. Kurt won against Nicole.S(UMKC)(^o^), but lost to Rachel.L(MBK). Eli got through the first stage, beat Viet.H(UMKC), but lost to Andy.M(UMKC) at the next stage. Every ones matches were really great
I got through the first league, but lost to Chiaki.K(Fudoshin) at the next stage.
I lost to Tom.M(UMKC), and Ruben.B(MBK) ...(ToT)\meh
Nanseikan was against MBK. The team order was senpou-Jimmy, chuken-Kurt, and taishou-Eli.
Good match but lost...Still, good fight everyone!!!!
We were against Fudoushin (like last year). Senpou was me, chuken Kurt and taishou Eli. We did lose, but did our best, and did a good fight against the champion team
The result was, Eli got the fighting spirit award, and i got third place in the women's individual. Yahoo!!
It was a long and bloody cold day, but we had fun, learned heaps, and got determination to get stronger and revenge next year!!
So lets all train hard and get strong!!! Nanseikan Banzai!!!(^^)/
p.s. hey, guys who went to VKC, i somehow maneged to delete all the pictures i took, so if you have any photos, please send them to Ben so he can put it on

Some more holiday reading, this time about something that I hope everyone will be doing and thinking about regularly while they are not in the dojo – suburi! This research is by a group of researchers from Keio University in Japan, led by two 7-dan kendo sensei. They looked at the best position to swing back to, and also the best position to stop the cut, whilst doing men suburi.
