2006 Victorian Kendo Taikai

Congratulations to the Ballarat team for their fine effort at today's Victorian Kendo Taikai. No medals but great Kendo from Gary, Jason, Tarl, Adam, Ruffy, Trent & Peter. A full Kyu team might have seen Ballarat take out this years team event given that they were defeated by 1 point with only a four person team! Photos from the day can be found here.
