A weekend of success!

Congratulations to Michelle and Anthony for their grading success in Gateshead this weekend. Michelle achieved Ikkyu and Anthony came away with Ni-dan, both amazing results and testament to their continued practice and focus, well done. Also Manchester's Rick Edmondson and Bogdan Parzych both passed their San-dan gradings.

Additionally a big congratulations to Joe and Josh, who alongside Manchester's Yutaka Matsubayashi came 3rd in the Northern Cup. The winning team also included Manchester's Tom Widdows and Rick Edmondson so it was quite a showing from North West kendo. Amazing fighting spirit from all involved as well as the other Liverpool and Manchester kendoka who graded and competed.

Don't forget that it is beginners night tomorrow. Just a couple of things to remember; don't forget to wear loose comfortable clothing, if you have any injuries let someone know at the start, if you are under 18 years old, we are sorry but you won't be able to practise due to legislation.

If you have any queries whatsoever, why not join our Facebook page.

Remember, kendo is a two lifetime martial art, enjoy it.

See you tomorrow.

Back to bogu next week

Don't forget that we are back in bogu next week. We have now finished kangeiko and completed around three and half thousand cuts over the two nights. Over the next next year we all need to set ourselves long term targets (e.g. the next grade, winning a competition), but to reach these targets we need to hit smaller ones. Correcting our posture, relaxing our arms to cut, improving our breathing etc are weekly targets that we should always be working on. THE BASICS are what kendo comes from (remember to look after the little things and the big things will look after themselves). So, ask yourself the question "what will I do to improve my kendo?", because Sensei can only show us the door, we are the ones that have to walk through it. I would suggest you try three things, keep a kendo diary (for musings and really good points you have learnt, push yourselves and travel and fence as many people as possible).
