The 3rd Kendo World Tokyo Keiko-kai is a little under a month away. It will be held on Saturday August 2, 2014, at Meiji University’s new Nakano Campus, a different venue from last year.
So far we have five 8-dan sensei that have confirmed that they will be attending, and we are waiting for responses from a few more so we are hoping for that number to increase.
The confirmed sensei so far are;
H8-dan Masago Takeshi, a director of the All Japan Kendo Federation
K8-dan Nagao Susumu, Meiji University Vice-Principal
K8-dan Hirakawa Nobuo, former Meiji University and Tokai University Professor
K8-dan Hayashi Nobuo, Hitotsubashi University Kendo Club Shihan
K8-dan Kawanabe Shoji, a businessman from Shizuoka
As in the previous years, keiko will last from 1000-1200 and then there will be a party from 1230-1430. This year there will also be a raffle and we have some fantastic prizes to be given away.
This year’s event is the day after the Kitamoto seminar that runs until Friday August 1. If you are coming from overseas for that, why not join us as well?
The number of participants has to be limited to 50, and we have already filled up 36 places, so if you would like to take part, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, nationality, grade and a contact phone number. We have to confirm numbers with Meiji University by Wednesday July 23, so please let us know as soon as possible if you are able to attend.
The cost of participation in this event will be 5000yen, payable on the day in cash.
We hope to see you on August 2!
