”Dear iaidoka/jodoka,

Hereby we invite you to the Netherlands Kendo Renmei’s summer seminar 2014.

We are pleased to announce that Ishido sensei (iaido 8-dan hanshi, jodo 8-dan kyoshi) will again be assisted by the following instructors from Japan:
– Yoshimura Kenichi: iaido 8-dan kyoshi, jodo 7-dan kyoshi
– Shoji Keiichi: jodo 8-dan kyoshi, iaido 7-dan kyoshi.

Also Igarashi Keiji (well known from budo equipment supplier Noshudo) will be present again.

The task of teaching will be shared by the Japanese instructors with the participating European sensei, so there will be different groups for every level.

The enormous floor of the Eindhoven Indoor Sports Center will guarantee plenty of space for everybody to practice at the same time.

The dates are August 1-5 (first jodo, then iaido). There will gradings for both budo from 1-kyu up to and including 5-dan.

You’ll be able to find all information about the seminar on a special website: sites.google.com/site/eindhovenseminar2014.

This includes information about the new hotel arrangement that we made. In short, we think there are plenty of reasons to join the seminar! You can register for both the seminar and the gradings through the forementioned website. The deadline is June 30.

We look forward to seeing you in Eindhoven! Kind regards, Aad van de Wijngaart Technical director Netherlands Kendo Renmei”
