The 9th Annual Keishicho (Tokyo Police Force) Sensei Kendo Seminar

From Etobicoke Kendo Club:

Dear Sensei and Kendo Friends,

We are pleased to announce the 9th Annual Keishicho (Tokyo Police Force) Sensei Kendo Seminar hosted by Kendo Ontario and Etobicoke Olympium Kendo / Iaido Club. Last year we were fortunate to have Takeuchi Masato sensei lead a very successful seminar.

This year, Takizawa Takanori sensei (6 Dan Kendo, 4 Dan Iaido) from Keishicho will lead the seminar.

Kendo Ontario and Etobicoke Olympium Kendo / Iaido Club will be looking forward to seeing you at this seminar. No fee will be collected for this seminar, but generous donations from participants and dojos will be greatly appreciated to help cover the cost related for this annual event.

Please see following details:
