16th Otsu Cup – Miyamoto Musashi Women’s Kendo Tournament

Following the visit of Mimasaka city’s Mayor and Kendo Hanshi Tahara sensei last December 2016 during the Winter Seminar 2016, our NT Ladies were invited to join the 16th edition of the Otsu Cup.

Two of them, Lisa Van Laecken & Freija D’Hont, together with our President Dany Delepière and the European Tour leader Yoshinobu Kurogi joined the event.

As a part of the 17 people large selection of European Kendo Ladies, they will take part in a unique Women Kendo Tournament which will see 640 ladies in 194 teams competing.

Gambatte!!

Jean Pierre Raick – Rest in Peace

Today, we received a very sad news from Lille. Jean Pierre Raick, Kendo & Iaido Kyoshi 7th dan and EKF Technical Director, passed away.

We all know what he did for our disciplines during the past years. We all know that in the last months he was fighting a battle impossible to win.

Our thoughts go to his Family and Dojo members in Lille. We would like to express our deepest condolences.

Sayonara Jean Pierre…
