On 25 and 26 January 2020, 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 25 January, and we will busy ourselves with Jodo on Sunday 26 January.
The jodo part of the 22st edition of the cup will be led by René van Amersfoort sensei Kyoshi 8 dan Jodo, and Jock Hopson sensei Kyoshi 7 dan iaido 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
