MUKC – Exam week 1

AKR/VKR Membership renewal/registration CLOSING SOON

[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) (tonight). 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!


Good luck to all students!

The exam week has started. So from the bottom of my heart, we wish you can remember everything you need to remember.

Why are bogu blue?

Bogu are dyed with indigo dye from way way way wayyy back. (Read the link below for more details)
This dye is extracted from the Perisicaria Tinctoria (or Japanese indigo plant). Actually, according to Tozando it takes 40+ dyeing repetitions to get the blue we all know and love.
