Beginners Tournament

The Melbourne University Kendo Club is considering hosting a Kendo tournament specifically for beginners of 1 years experience and are seeking expressions of interest from Victorian Clubs to gauge possible numbers.

Many things are to be confirmed but the plan so far is:
  • Individual Tournament limited to adult VKR (& AKR) members who commenced Kendo training after 1 January 2009.
  • To be held at Melbourne University Sports Centre on either a Saturday afternoon/evening or on a Sunday.
  • Preferred dates are some time from mid February (after the Nittai Dai visit) to mid March (not too close to the AKC’s).
  • Possible male and female divisions depending on numbers.
  • Entry Fee in the range of $10, trophies awarded.

The purpose of the tournament is to provide an opportunity for beginners to compete in possibly their first serious competition, and for shinpan to practise their skills in a situation where the standard is fairly even.

Could you please canvas your members asap and give an indication as to how many of your members (no of males, no of females) would be likley to enter such a tournament by Friday 22 January, to

I can be contacted on 0411 255 662 for further information.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter,

Yakov Macak,
Instructor, Melbourne University Kendo Club
