Term 4 starts this week - wrapping up our 20th year
This year has been one of our best. Above is a pic of our biggest ever beginners' class. Thanks again to Soon for running it.
This term there are a number of events both within the club and outside in the wider Kendo community:
- Fri 7 October - VKR monthly training at Kenshikan
- Sat 8 October - official term 4 start at Nanseikan
- Sun 16 October - Nagae Taikai at Kenshikan
- Friday 4 November - VKR monthly training at Kenshikan
- November - VKR club-based gradings
- Sun 20 November - VKR state council meeting (online)
- Fri 2 December - VKR monthly training at Kenshikan
- Sat 3 December - Mumeishi 3s competition, Berwick
- Sat 17 December - Nanseikan Shochugeiko at the beach
Our 20th anniversary shochugeiko (summer training) will again be at Blairgowrie Community Hall. This year it should be bigger and better than ever. All VKR kenshi are invited. Nanseikan members will be able to carpool (and maybe also bus) together from the dojo, leaving at 7.00am to start training at 9.00am. Depending on the weather we will either train until 3.00pm or 5.00pm, and then head to the nearby Blairgowrie front beach for a self-catered BBQ.
The seminar is free. Lunch and BBQ things will be BYO, with the club subsidising some of the basics. More info to come.
