Yoshinaga sensei interview

Added on by J.K. SHISHIDO.

Shigeo Yoshinaga sensei (1917-2013) was my first kendo teacher. Here is a very informal videotaped "interview" that I recorded with him back in 2004.

Part One: 43 minutes, Part Two: 25 minutes: [ videos ]

I'd like to do more interviews with other kendo people here in Hawaii.

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.
