Ishidocup 25&26 of January 2014 – Utrecht (NL)

A Belgian delegation was present at this yearly event for Iaido and Jodo.

In the morning there was a mini-seminar, in the afternoon there was a taikai.

And the Belgians were once again outstanding:

  • Saturday – Iaido – 120 participants – 4 medals !
  • Sunday – Jodo – 48 participants – 5 medals !

This looks very promising for the future.
