(2) MBK Otsuka Memorial Taikai [Open to all members in full bogu]
Date: Saturday 16 July 2022

The Otsuka Memorial Taikai commemorates the opening of the Kenshikan Dojo on the 15th of July 1990. The existence of the dojo would not have been possible without the generous donation made by Mr Kenshiro Otsuka and the Otsuka Family.

This year’s event is of special significance because we were unable to hold our 30th anniversary in July 2020 due to the global COVID pandemic.

Taikai Eligibility:
Junior Division – aged 10 to 17 as of 1 July 2022.
Senior Division – ungraded kendoka (in full bogu, with the permission of their head sensei) up to and including 2nd Dan.
Register: via RevSport by 3 July 2022
Format: Teams of three
The members of each team will be randomly selected so competitors in a team may not be from the same club
The teams and the draw will be announced on the day of the Taikai.
Shinai check will be conducted during competitor check-in.
