On Friday 10th of March, we were glade to welcome some guests comes far from Japan. Ritsumeikan University (立命館大学) is one of famous university from Japan and it has some strongest Kendo players. This time, they come to Sydney and visit us for two days, bring some different Kendo presentations. By using this valuable chance, we held a special training start from 5pm.
We have a short open ceremony to introduce us to each other.
After opening ceremony, shiai was held to make us get closer. In the shiai, we can feel the strength gap between us. Later in the training, we were doing free practice and this gave us a good chance to communicate with Ritsumeikan students.
In the shiai, our members can learn a lot from those senbei from Ritsumeikan
When seniors are having shiai, other members are helping in the court for timing, scoring and other voluntary work. As the new semester start, we also get many new members which has no Kendo experience before, it is a good chance to deepen their understanding on Kendo and benifits their Kendo life in th future.
