BCKF July Seminar – July 7 – 10, 2010 @ SFU & Sunrise dojo

Dear BCKF & CKF Members:

The Sunrise Kendo Club is very excited to announce that it will be hosting a series of kendo seminars in early July. Uegaki Sensei has invited 4 prominent Sensei from Japan to lead these sessions.

The instructors include:

  • Yoshiyama Mitsuru Sensei: kendo kyoshi 7th dan; author of the well known publication “The Kendo Grading Book.”
  • Shiina Kazue Sensei: 7th headmaster Hokushin Itto-Ryu & Head Instructor of the Sekai (World) Kendo Butoku Washinkai
  • Aida Shinji Sensei: kendo kiyoshi 7th dan; Vice-President of the Sekai (World) Kendo Butoku Washinkai;
  • Kouzu Kazuhiko Sensei: head of the culture & arts division of the Sekai (World) Kendo Butoku Washinkai.

The curriculum will cover a range of topics (including kendo/zen breathing techniques and training methods to improve your kendo), but it will also likely feature some demonstrations of Hokushin Itto-Ryu and techniques that apply to kendo.

The seminar schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, July 7th — 7pm – 9:00pm
Location: SFU East Gym
