Every year, we celebrate the legacy of Charles Lidstone who was one of the earliest Kendo teachers in Europe, leader of Nenriki Dojo from its inception in 1966 and a person who took particular interest in nurturing beginners. The taikai is specifically aimed at kendoka new to the art. All BKA Kyu grade with less than three years experience are eligible to participate in the competition. There will be pools of “training shiai” (Shiai Geiko) with advice on what to do in a shiai environment. The taikai will follow afterwards and the day ends with open jigeiko to all, both participants and guests. Finally, there will be refreshments available for all.
