Kendo training and seminars have been cancelled on a global scale due to the effects of the new coronavirus. However, there are many things you can do at home without having to wear your Bogu and go to the Dojo. It may be a good opportunity for you to review Kendo at your own pace.
This time, as a supportive project for this period of home Keiko we will be holding an online seminar with Takahiro Nabeyama Sensei to give you the opportunity to learn more about Kendo at your own pace.
Participants will be asked to send in a video of the exercises in advance. Specifically, you will be asked to send in a video of your Suburi beforehand, and Nabeyama Sensei will use the video as a basis for Suburi instruction. Since this is a pilot program, there is no charge for participation and the number of participants is limited to 20.
This project is also a way to explore new ways to learn Kendo. We hope you will join us for the further development of overseas Kendo.
