Huge thanks to all the dojos that hosted us. It was a great reminder of how generous and welcoming kendo clubs are. We look forward to visiting you all again, and stopping by other clubs we didn’t manage to visit over the summer break. Nenriki returns to regular training on the 2nd of September, 2016.
