Aiea Taiheiji Kendo Tournament (Sunday, November 19, 2017)

Added on by J.K. SHISHIDO.

One person from Meikyokan entered - Reiko Hayashi participated in the Women's Open division. She was eliminated in the first round, losing both of her matches.

I especially enjoyed watching matches by Caden Matsumoto (Kenshikan Kendo Club), the Tamura brothers from Japan (currently at Kenshikan Kendo Club), and Braxton Fukutomi sensei (Aiea Kendo Club).

Everyone was happy to have Aiea Taiheiji Kendo Club host a tournament again. It has been several years since the last one. Thank you Aiea Taiheiji Kendo Club.

2015 Kenshikan Tournament

Added on by J.K. SHISHIDO.

This was the first tournament that our dojo has participated in. As a new dojo, we had only one person enter - dojo administrator Hayashi. The other students are still very much beginners and don't wear bogu yet, so I just asked them to come to watch. Hayashi did pretty good, she placed second in the Seinenbu division. Maybe two years from now we will be able to enter a team for the team matches. We need 4 more people to make a team.
