The Kendo World team is pleased to announce that we will be holding the 8th Kendo World Tokyo Keiko-kai on Saturday July 27, 2019, at Meiji University’s Nakano Campus. There will be a keiko session followed by a party in the university lounge. The cost of participation will be around 5,000yen.
This year’s keiko-kai is the day after the Kitamoto Seminar finishes, so if you’re in Japan for that, why not join us as well?
Like every year, we have invited several 8-dan and 7-dan sensei to act as motodachi. The All Japan Jukendo Federation are also dispatching some sensei to the keiko-kai to conduct a jukendo and tankendo demonstration, as well as joining in with the participants for some isshu-jiai.
The keiko session will run from 14:40-16:40 and will feature ji-geiko/mawari-geiko, kihon practice, jukendo/tankendo embu, and shido-geiko.
After keiko we will adjourn to the university lounge for food and drinks from 17:10 to 19:00. As always, there will be a raffle where you can win some great kendo-related prizes.
Once the party has finished at 19:00, it’s just a short walk to the beer garden near the university where you can continue to discuss the finer points of kendo with the other participants and sensei over more liquid refreshments. After that, Shinjuku is just a short train ride away if you want to keep the party and conversation going.
If you would like to take part, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, nationality, grade, affiliation (i.e. university, company etc.) and a contact number.
