BKA Iaido and Jodo National Championships 2014

Team Kashiwa had a great Nationals this year, winning silver in the iaido team competition, bronze in the jodo team competition and Will won a bronze in the jodo individuals and picked up the fighting spirit award for the jodo team event. Huge thanks to all that helped organise and run the events, expertly done as usual. Also special thanks to Yukiko Ayres for taking so many great photographs (including these ones!).

BKA Iaido Spring Seminar 2014

BKA Iaido Spring Seminar 2014

Just back from a great iaido spring seminar in Stevenage (05/04/14-06/04/14). Very intensive training and lots of detailed technical information relayed to us from the senior Japanese delegation who attended the High-Grade Seminar a few weeks ago. One of the best organised seminars I’ve been to, with a great balance of training and discussion (i.e. not too much discussion!). Many thanks to the BKA iaido bu for all their efforts.

Congratulations go to Kashiwa student Rafal Radosz (pictured), who passed his iaido Ikkyu grading on the Sunday.
