Noumea Kendo Seminar 31 Aug–12 Sept
Jean-Paul Belhomme, head of the Noumea Kendo Club, has sent an invitation to all Australian kenshi to this year's Kendo, Iaido and Jodo seminar in Noumea (lovely pic above, thanks Wikipedia— looks like a video and the sail is the 'play' icon, hehe).
The seminar will be run by Ota sensei (Kendo Hanshi 8 dan), Shioiri sensei (Kendo Kyoshi 7 dan, Iaido 4 dan) and Takagi sensei (Iaido 7 dan). Ota sensei is a regular visitor to Australia, and Shioiri sensei is well-known to Australian kenshi because he is one of the All Japan Kendo Federation's main English translators, and frequently attends the Annual Summer School in Kitamoto.
If you and your family were thinking of a Pacific Island holiday sometime in the next six months, why not combine it with some excellent Kendo practice? d(^ _^)
