            Video of Kishin-Kamata


            I asked someone at the tournament to email me regarding the video of the 4dan and up Men's final. When I got home, i realized I gave him the wrong email address. If you are reading this, please add a 7 before the 9 in the address.

            Also, if anyone else was able to video this match, please contact me via PM.

                Shufukai is the name of the local dojo in Randolf
                Goyokai is the name of the tournament, although I believe it has more meaning but I'm not sure what.

                  I thought Kenshinkai A won 2nd place in teams?

                  That's one taikai I wish I didn't have to miss!

                    You are right. Kenshinkai A did win 2nd place in teams. Thanks for catching that.
