On a sunny saturday, the ABKF Technical Committee gave the “kyu” members of all Belgian dojo “rendez-vous” in Ghent for the annual (free) seminar. The weatherforecast, this time, did very well predictions which made many of our beginners doing other things than Kendo.
About 60 persons enjoyed the seminar and had an introduction to the new “Bokutoh Training” which our delegates to the annual “Kitamoto” (J) seminar were drilled in. Maybe in the next future this part will become a part of examination, so be aware of this training method.
At the end of the practise several persons were granted ikkyu before joining the free practise with the members of our National Kendo Team which organized their BBQ afterwards in a location close to the hall… This group prepares actively the selection for the team which will represent Belgium at the next World Kendo Championships and try to find solutions to sponsor their participation in this hugh event.
If any of you,readers, have ideas… contact the members of this group!
