Dear VKR member,

Kendo – Last training session Sunday 22nd of December 2019 and first Sunday 5th of January 2020.

For Kendoka wishing to train between the above dates, Kenshikan will be open for “casual” training during the normal training times.
New Year’s Eve Kendo Keiko
Also, there will be New Year’s Eve Kendo Keiko on the 31st of December to farewell 2019 and to usher in 2020. The dojo will open at 10:30pm and then training will start before a small pause just before midnight to allow the participants to usher in 2020, and then training will continue for about 45 minutes or so.
After training has concluded, participants are welcome to remain to have a bite to eat and drinks as per last year….or should I say this year? Therefore people attending this event are requested to bring food, drinks, dessert to share with everyone.
Please note NO ALCOHOL will be allowed on the premises, either in the dojo or in the car park.
We hope you can make it!
