Great news for ABKF and Tanaka sensei (Yu-Hi dojo) last sunday! After a full weekend of translation for the EKF Referee seminar in Brussels, under the guidance of ZNKR delegation including Eiga sensei, he managed to keep enough energy to present and successfully pass the 7th dan grading in Kendo…! Congratulations Robin Tanaka sensei for this nice achievement!
This morning, we received the very sad news of the loss of one of the founders of our Federation. Mr Jacques Dupont passed away at the age of 83.
He was one of the founders of our group but also the first EKF General Secretary. His contribution to Kendo in Europe was unanimously recognized.
We have lost a great man, some of us have lost a friend. Our profound condolences go to his wife and family…

This year’s Belgian referees were Patrik Demuynck and Luc Defraeye. After a long travel, from Brussels via Frankfurt to Katowice airport, we arrived on Thursday evening at Zawiercie. Luckily, we had made bus reservation, so no worries to find transportation. The hotel was great...
