27th Winter Seminar Kendo, Iaido & Jodo

In December since 27 years in a row, ABKF organise its Winter event for Kendo, Iaido and Jodo. This year, almost 400 persons coming from 31 different countries showed up at (at least) one of the trainings organized from Tuesday to Sunday. During the weekend, also grading sessions took place where we welcomed around 130 candidates and we ended with the traditional Kendo competitions ( ladies, men individuals and the team of three). Specific for this tournament is the “Ippon Shobu” rule which asks for constant sharpness of attention if you want to win the tournament.

This year we had our sponsors “Ichigan” which offered nice tabi to the female winner but also “Rio Brewering Co” which offered nice set of beer to all winners and last but not least “All Nippon Airways” who made it possible to send our individual winners to Japan!

An extra was the fact that the female winner is officially invited by Mimasaka city (Japan) to join the 2018 edition of the “Otsu Cup” which takes place on October 14th, 2018 in Japan!

A large amount of pictures are easily available at social media such as Facebook.
