Dear Iaidoka and Jodoka,

On 26 and 27 January 2019, the Dutch Kendo Renmei organises the annual Ishido Cup. This tournament, named after Ishido sensei, is an open championship to which foreign budoka are welcome to participate. As in the previous years, we will have the opportunity to practice during a seminar that will take place prior to the tournaments.
This edition of the Ishido Cup will be spread over two days: we will practice Iaido on Saturday 26 January, and we will busy ourselves with Jodo on Sunday 27 January.

The jodo part of the 21st edition of the cup will be led by René van Amersfoort sensei, and Jock Hopson sensei will lead the iaido day. Besides the seminar and taikai, there will also be an opportunity for examinations up to 5th dan.

We hope to once more welcome many of you on this first NKR event in the new year. Best regards on behalf of the NKR,

The Organising Committee
