2015 MUKEN Taikai

Happy May Day to all!

The 2015 MUKEN Taikai is coming at the end of this month. It is one of the best taikai for newer kenshi because it has 'upper' and 'lower' kyu grade divisions, and also a division for people who have only been training since 2014.

Please see this message below from Jularaj about the details.
