  • 31st Annual Vancouver Kendo Club Tournament

    Hello Everyone,

    Just a heads up. The Annual Vancouver Kendo Taikai is soon approaching. Here's some info:

    Saturday, January 22nd, 2005
    Location: Capilano College in North Vancouver

    I have sent out invitations to all dojos on the CKF, PNKF, SCKF, and Hawaii, and Alaska websites. I wanted to send out some to the NCKF, but there are no addresses on the website. If any of you are from NCKF, and want entry forms sent to your dojo's sensei, please send me a message! We are holding this shiai at a larger location, and are hoping that we will have more participants. The categories for this taikai are arranged by age, so for some of you, you will get the chance to fight different people than you're used to.

    There is a really nice hotel located very close to the location, and we were able to get excellent rates!! For more info, please post a message!

              Tournament Categories

              Here are the categories. They are arranged by age, so your rank doesn't really matter here. It is an advantage for some, and an dis-advantage for others, but it's the way it has always been at our tournaments.

              9 years and under
              10-12 years
              13-15 years
              16-20 years
              21-30 years
              31-40 years
              41 and over years
              Women's
              Junior Team
              Senior Team
              *There will be no dojo team again this year.

              There is an excellent list of last years winners on the US Kendo website: http://www.kendo-usa.org/results/vancouver_2004.htm

              PS-Jamie, I don't know if you'd be interested in our club...us girls are pretty scary....

                      21-30 age group. That's Tenken, Tenken's brother, and Mr.Kurukuru. Plus all the tough guys from Canada. Looks like it's gonna be a really tough tournament for me. So what are we gonna do Ms.Kendo before and after the tournament? Wasabi ice cream??? Hmm.. maybe curry ice cream this time. Hahahah.

                        Issac...I'm sure you will be able to compete in the taikai. Just keep practicing hard. Don't worry. Hayashi-sensei will usually let you know if he wants you to be in the tournament. I will let him know you are interested.
                        As far as Monday practices, we're still in the process of confirming the place. But if all goes well, it looks like we should be able to practice from next Monday! I will e-mail all club members as soon as it is decided. See you @ practice on Friday!

                        MOOOOOOCOW~!!!!! so you guys are coming for sure? All of you? what are you going to do about Steveston?! Let me know what you decide. Us Vancouver'ers are going to be very busy probably before the taikai...so I'm hoping you guys can stay a bit after the tournament. Most likely the morning of the tournament, i'm going to be in and out of the house running to and from the gym, but it's really close to my house...i.e....it's in the mountains! Maybe we can work something out, if you guys are really coming, so that you can take my car...and maybe hang with my mom?!?! haha...
                        Make sure that you get an application form. There should've been one sent to you guys through the address that was on the SCKF site. If you don't get it within the week...let me know, ASAP! I'm going to be away for a month, so if you don't get it, then...you're kinda screwed, and I won't be here to help. All applications are due January 1st!

                        PS-OMG! you guys have to try the HEDGEHOG ICE CREAM!! I'm SOO addicted now!

                            I have no idea how you could say that. Mako and Ms. Kendo look nothing alike. For one thing, Mako's about 1/2" taller.
