  • Live kendo tournament!!

    http://www.nishinippon.co.jp/jigyou/...ive/index.html

    in the next few days there will be a tournament presented live on the link up.
    Now it is the Judo tournament but I think tomorrow will start the girls kendo tournament.

    Its the second biggest tournament in importance for the High Schooler in Japan after the All Japan inter-Hi. So very high level of kendo !

    do you know what time the kendo tournament starts? vancouver time if you know...

    can you also tell me what those numbers at the right side tell? i'm guessing they're tv channels.

      the numbers on the right are the court's number. In the earlier rounds there should be like 10 courts playing at the same time. There is so many teams competeting its incredible, most of them being of kyushuu area. On top of the 10 number there is a bigger butons, if you click on it you get a view of the whole tournament.

      I dont know about the time , too lazy to make the time conversion :O


      This tournament is actually a bit different than other kendo team tournaments. The winner stays. Which means that if the senpo (1st player on the team) wins 5 matches in a row the other team loses. In case of a hikiwake its like if both player loses. Add to this that if one guy is found of not going for getting a point they will get hansoku. So the kendo is of a really agressive tempo! Its fun to watch and you can learn lot of cool shiai techniques.

      and I say go sendai koukou even thought mitsunobu sensei isnt teaching there anymore

            They are going to have a live-feed to that link above? That is pretty cool. I don't think I have the bandwidth though for a live-feed at any good speed. Anyone gonna save/capture it for the rest of us? Thanks.
