As mentioned in issue #1 of Kihaku, in the final event of our 50th anniversary year, Nenriki Kendo Club will be running a weekend course in Ono–ha Ittō-ryū Kenjutsu on the 10-11th of December, led by Victor Harris. All are welcome.
To those unfamiliar, the Ono–ha Ittō-ryū is one of the oldest extant schools of traditional Japanese swordsmanship and exerted a major influence upon modern kendo, including shinai keiko.
We would appreciate your reply via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org in the next 7 days indicating if you are likely to participate in any part or all of the following programme.
Please indicate with Yes or No for the following dates/times –
Please email name & dojo of all attendees.
Recommended dress for the two days (no kendo bogu required): keikogi & hakama.
Please bring along a bokken.
Please also bring refreshments/lunch. However, there are a few shops & cafes nearby.
There will be a nominal charge of £3/day (payable at the door) with all proceeds going to a water aid related charity with a view to supporting the provision of clean water and proper sanitation in parts of the world that need support. We’ll have suitable tea breaks, of course.
