End of Spring 2012 Semester


For current members, regular practice resumes May 2nd. It will be the summer schedule, which is 6 – 7:30 Iaido and 7 – 8:45 Kendo.

In the meantime, we will have Kata practice today (Mon) and Wednesday at 7:30pm, in the racket ball courts.

For the newbies, TBD :D


Wednesday was the last practice of Spring 2012. Thank you all so much for your hard work this semester! We won’t be having practice until further notice. Please check this site or facebook to stay informed of when practice resumes. In the meantime, don’t forget to do suburi at home~

See you all again in summer semester!


Practice Schedule for April

A reminder that we do not have practice tomorrow (Monday Apr 9) due to Easter Monday! Last practice of the semester is April 18, so please try and show up if your exam schedule allows.

The website will be updated if we are able to get some extra practice time after 18th and before summer semester starts.

For new members wishing to try out Kendo, our summer semester will start either second or third week of May. Practice time will still be Monday and Wednesday, but instead of practicing 7:30~9:30pm, we will be practicing 7:00~9:00pm. The exact dates for the trial week will be posted early May.
