    18th All Japan Jukendo Championship

    By Baptiste Tavernier

    The 18th All Japan Jukendo Championship was held on August 6th, 2010, at the Nippon Budokan in central Tokyo. This year, with the tournament being scheduled on Friday, the Budokan was nearly empty. Nevertheless, the 64 participants (6-dan and above) offered us very interesting and powerful performances in their shiai.

    There were only two courts this year compared to the several courts of the past, so it was a little bit easier to follow the action. ...

  • 58th All Japan University Student Mens Kendo Championships

    58th All Japan University Student Mens Kendo Championships

    Held in Osaka for the past three years, this years 58th All Japan University Student Mens Kendo Championships was held in Tokyos Budokan on the 4th of July, 2010.

    Beginning early Sunday morning, scores of the future of Japanese mens kendo donned their best blues, and began to slug it out for the coveted title as Japans number 1.
    Word around the stadium picked athletes from both Kokushikan University and Kanoya Physical Education University (Kanoya Taiiku Daigaku) as the horses to bet on a wager any punter (Sumo wrestler or otherwise) would be a fool to pass up considering these universities results in the women's competition the previous day.

  • 2012 WKC in Novara - Day 3
    snooz2k2
    The final day of the 15th WKC featured the men's team event. There were many hard fought matches in the pools, and then the ensuing tournament stage, but eventually the field was narrowed down to the US versus Korea in one semifinal, and Hungary versus Japan in the other. Japan defeated Hungary without too much difficulty, but they will be very satisfied with their first third placing. The United States took Korea to the wire, and Chris Yang scored what must be considered one of the gutsiest ippon men strikes ever seen. In the end it was Korea that prevailed though, and the stage was set for yet another Japan versus Korea grudge match. The atmosphere was tense, and the matches were controversial. In the end...

  • 2012 WKC in Novara - Day 2
    snooz2k2
    Saturday, 26th May in Novara, another beautiful day for the womens individual and teams events at the 15th WKC. The tournament ended in another Japan versus Korea final in the teams and individuals events. Japan won again in the teams, but it was an extremely close match. Much closer than many people thought it would be In the end, it was only 1 for Japan and 0 for Korea, but led by the legendary Miyazaki-sensei, it was the Japanese who prevailed...but only just. Brazil and Germany were third, and well done to them. The Australian women came so close to a third placing only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against the Brazilians....

  • 2012 WKC in Novara - Day 1
    snooz2k2
    The 15th WKC kicked off in Novara, Italy, today with the Mens Individual event. Novara skies were blue, but that mattered little to the thousands who packed into the modern sporting venue. The air was thick with tension from the outset, and the round-robin matches saw a number of upsets, and very exciting matches. Predictably, the Italian fighters received their fair share of raucous support from the locals as they demonstrated the fruits of their intensive build up for the event. By the end of the day, the final four had been whittled down to two Koreans and two Japanese. In...
