A new season has begun. Protect traditional Keiko under the new rules.
Our dojo joined again this year the seminar organized by ABKF as well as the competitions.
A lot of our members joined the different trainings and our 2 teams engaged in the competitions did very well. Our Kensaku was even able to win the individual men competition and Wakakoma 1 became third in the team competition.
2019 Edition of the annual Belgium Kendo Championships for Kyu-grades were held in Ghent, organized by regional federation VKIJF under the authority of the All Belgium Kendo Federation.
Our dojo joined with almost 30 participants. People from all ver Belgium from the age of 5 up to … joined for a full day of shiai. At the end of the day, examinations for ikkyu and shodan were organized. We could count on the support of our parents, yudansha and referees to make this day successful.
