  • Ontario Sr. Tournament

    Is there anyone that is going to participate in Ontario tournament?

    I am. So are about 7 people from my dojo plus some people visiting us from Japan. I don't think they'll be on our team though.

      McGill (myself included) will be there... We have at least 12 people coming, probably a few more will be added to that number.

      Maybe I'll be (un)lucky and draw a fight against Kyotaka Kamata in teams again...

        Did anyone get the results for the Jr. Tournament?
        I couldn't make it this year I heard there were some really good matches.

          University of Waterloo will most definitly be there, not sure how many people though. Likely we'll get two teams in. I know I'll be there.

            I won't be there but look for a mixed prairie team headed by Shiono-sensei from Banff.

                  Looks like one Ottawa dojo is bringing in ringers from Japan. Gutless bastards...

                  Hey Raiza, any one these imports actually in my division or will they all be competing with the higher ups?

                  By the way, D'O.-sensei is coming to the tourney.

                  P.S. I emailed Etobicoke about getting the full results from the junior tournament... no reply yet. I'm still waiting for U of T results too (from March!!!). If I ever receive them they'll be posted on the McGill Club website.

                      Kancho,

                      I just checked the program from last March's U of T tourney: There were a little under 100 people in kyu division last year. I suppose you should expect a few more since there has been no grading between then and now (i.e. no one could change divisions).

                      Don't be nervous... except if you're fighting someone from McGill, then you should most likely be very nervous. I heard those McGill people are real killers in fact, so fast you cannot see them until they hit you, and by then it's too late...

                        Good, then you can tell rokudan Shiono-sensei (from Hokkaido) what a ringer he is. In the last two months we've had three rokudans come visit, which is practically unheard of here. Sato-san is one heck of a host. He's pretty good at leading a class too.

                        I think they're competing with the higher ups, but I'm not certain. If one or more are competing with you, I'll let them know who called them a ringer.

                          I believe we are sending you Bozzer-sensei from Edmonton.

                            That's great! It's so neat that people love kendo so much they'll go to enormous lengths to attend tournaments, seminars, etc. If only I had the time!

                              That was a lot of fun. It was so good to see Sato-san back in action. Even more fun the day before was training with the Toronto Kendo Club. Being stuck with the mukyu crowd made me realize how far I've come in the last year and what a great club I belong to. Ikkyu test is next month and hopefully shodan next grading (summer?).

                              Your thoughts on the tourney?
