The club will be holding its 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the end of October. Details are as follows:

WHEN: Wednesday. 30 October 2019, starting after keiko at 8.15pm
WHERE: BBQ area outside Games Hall at Monash Sport, and the Leaders Room in the new Sports Pavillion also outside the Games Hall – ask a committee member to direct you if you’re unsure

As usual, the following positions will be elected at the AGM:
Vice President
Please respond to this email if you have someone you wish to nominate for one of the above positions.

As mentioned above, we will have a BBQ to feed people. If you have any dietary requirements or specific food requests (e.g. gourmet veggie burgers :P), please also respond to this email to let the committee know before 27 Oct 2019.

Lastly, we will be holding an auction to clear out our club storage. This will be an excellent chance for you to nab kendo gear at huge discounts! Parents, there will be several small sized uniform sets and some size 37 shinai for sale too. Attached is a list of stuff up for grabs so you can come prepared with the cash.

If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to ask me or another committee member.

Ballarat Goldfields Kendo Taikai 2019

FILE – Ballarat Kendo Tournament flyer (jpg)

Hi everyone,

This year’s Ballarat Taikai will be held at 1pm on Sunday Nov 10, in Ballarat (of course). It is open to everyone above 16 years old, in bogu. If you wish to enter, please let me know by either telling me in person, via message or by response to this email.


I trust this email finds you all well The Ballarat Goldfields Kendo Taikai which is now in its third year is on again on Sunday November 10th. The flyer attached gives details of the day and while we have restricted the number of entries and events I would like to personally invite each of you to attend either as an entrant or referee on the day.

This year we have to run the event on a Sunday starting at 1 p.m.
Hopefully this will not interfere with clubs who normally train on Sunday mornings and can be a focus for that day.

Like last year it is an opportunity for our students and us as senior Kendo Ka to support each other as a larger Kendo family. We view it as a good chance for young shinpan to hone their skills and for squad members to gain experience for next year’s campaign in Melbourne at the Nationals.

At last year’s competition Yano Sensei saved the day by handling the shimpan as there weren’t enough senior members to judge matches. I ask you all to help support our venture as shimpan if not as competitors as well.

The attached flier gives basic information but further details will follow shortly.

best regards,

Gary Oliver
Ballarat Kendo Club Inc
