  • 2018 International City Kendo Competition

    I attended this event last year.

    Not only was the event great, the various godo geiko before and after the event really made it extra worth while.

    Because the event will coincide with the changing of the guard for the President of the Taiwan Kendo Association, it'll be really big next year! Right now, they are saying at least 15 to 20 8-dans from Japan will be attending the event.
