A congratulations from Toney Evans to the beginners

Congratulations! You’ve made it through our 10-week beginner’s course. You may think this is insignificant, however, you’ve made a commitment and followed through which is to be commended. In reality, this is just the beginning of the rest of your kendo journey and there are many aspects of kendo that you are yet to take part in.
Some of it may be difficult, but as a club, we’ll pick each other up and keep pushing forward.

I look forward to training with you all,
Toney Evans
