    Hi everybody Things are starting to heat up here in Novara. The venue is all set up, with 4 shiai-jo, 2 big screens per shiai-jo and a giant screen at the right of the shomen. 2 sensei were having a Nihon kendo kata rehearsal this afternoon, and a few teams (Italy, Romania, etc.) were training in some sub-halls around.

We will also film quater-finals onward, and upload on youtube in the evening, so stay around ! ...

    The Kendo World team has been hard at work at a magazine production gasshuku in Chiba over the weekend. Apart from organising content for the upcoming issue of Kendo World, we also enjoyed a training session, and the mandatory frothy refreshments in the evening.

    Alex
    The 10th annual 8-Dan inivitaton kendo tounament for some of Japan's strongest hachidan masters happened in Nagoya this Sunday (April 15, 2012). Kendo World was there as always to cover the event. The semifinals and final will be uploaded on the KW Youtube Channel in the coming dats. The tournament was won by Tani Katsuhiko, a vice principal as a high school in Gunma. He will be a ref at the upcoming WKC in Italy. His opponent was K. Higashi, the jodan fighter and retired policeman from Aichi. He used to be a kickboxer who went by the name of Tiger Higashi, but the tiger was tamed today in a great final. The video will be up soon so check it out. The draw is below the videos.

      FWIW I attended this last year and it is a really interesting seminar, trying othr Budo is very fun and from the kendo side, there are a number of high ranked sensei there and almost no lines! When Makita sensei would go to the IBU keiko, the lines for him were absurd, yet here you could get in with only 5 people in a line tops.
