Weekly MUKC update – Summer break 8

5 dan grading Expression of Interest form

AKR is considering a 5-Dan Kendo Grading in lieu of the cancelled 2021 National grading usually held in conjunction with the Australian Kendo Championships. Due to the uncertain COVID-19 situation, we are interested to hear from eligible candidates for feedback.

N.B. Due to COVID-19 risks, the grading may be cancelled/postponed at short notice, and there may be additional requirements to manage safety and risks (e.g. use of masks, not allowing grading candidates to participate if they present COVID symptoms). In the event of a cancellation of the grading, the 5-Dan registration fees will be refunded.

Here is the link to the survey. Survey will close by 21st Feb 2021.


Returning to physical training

Our current training times are:

  • Monday: 6pm – 8pm
  • Wednesday: 6pm – 8pm
  • Saturday: 9:30am – 11am

You will be required to scan a QR code to enter Monash Sport and another QR code to join training so please bring a phone. You will also be required to wear a face mask/face shield at all times whilst training unless you have appropriate reasoning (as listed in RTP).


Storage of past photos and compilation video about MUKC

We are creating a storage to store all past photos to document as much of the past (almost) 30 years of history of MUKC! If you have any photos you would not mind sharing, you can upload it here.

Toney is also working on the compilation video and any videos you share would be awesome to have! (i.e. Shiais, social events, etc)
