Grading success!

Congratulations to all those who graded last weekend. Everyone was successful. Max, Patrick, Quinn, Ben, Alex and Nick all graded to 6th kyu. Sean graded to 5th kyu, Jerry graded to 4th kyu and Alvin graded to 3rd kyu. Grading fees are now due. They are $15 for Max, Quinn and Alex, and $35 for everyone else. If you want to do a bank transfer, just shoot me a quick email, otherwise you can pay at training next Saturday.

Shoji Teramoto's Kendo documentary

As promised today at training: lots of interesting stuff to look at in spite of no subtitles. The life of a poor Kendo champion... And then a look at the kind of teaching that I aspire to... :)

Congratulations, and ACT Taikai
