  • Sad message from Japan (30062021)

    Yoshimura sensei passed away

    It was a shock to learn that Yoshimura Ken’ichi sensei has passed away. Since 2006 he has attended every summer seminar of the NKR as a member of the Ishido senseis delegation. Countless participants have fond memories of his cheerfulness and playfulness, but also of the fighting spirit of his budo. He was 8-dan kyoshi in iaido and 7-dan kyoshi in jodo.

    Not everyone knew that he was also a very influential member of the Zen Nihon Kendo Renmei. Behind his jokes was a lot of wisdom.

    We wish his loved ones a lot of strength to bear this loss.
