Weekly MUKC update – Swotvac Week 1

AKR/VKR Membership renewal/registration~!

[Everyone including juniors/children should register]

It has come to the time of the year where we all have to renew our memberships (or register). The last day to renew/register for a membership is 7 June 2021 (11:59pm). As mentioned in a previous email, the AKR/VKR membership fees have increased to:

  • Senior/Adults: $85
  • Juniors/Under 18: $50

If you have any questions about the membership, don’t hesitate to send in an email or ask a senior during training!

To register, head over to our Unione site and scroll to the bottom of the webpage (or click on the Store option tab), then select either “Kendo 2021 VKR Membership JUNIOR” or “Kendo 2021 VKR Membership SENIOR” depending on whether you are under 18 or not.
Then follow the on-screen instructions to purchase the membership!


Training at home

As we have transitioned back to online mode once again, this Monday and Wednesday trainings (31/05 and 2/06) will be online.

More information about physical/online training on Saturday/next week will be shared closer to those dates.
