PPKC Kendo & Iaido Weekends
Last Saturday (May 21), two of our ladies — along with Osuga-sensei — participated in a kata demonstration of Nihon Kendo Kata and Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido kata (respcetively) for an “Introduction to Karate” seminar conducted by Mr. Isato Ochi of the Shikoku Ichiden Ryu at the CJCC.
The next day, Sunday (May 22), Mr. Ochi joined the first batch of Iaido students learning from Osuga-sensei, which is composed of members from the club, along with Andy Kent from Shotokan Dojo, and one visitor from Japan who studied Iaido under Osuga-sensei back in Manila, Philippines.
An hour later, everyone did kendo together, where they were joined by another traveling visitor from Japan.
The PPKC now holds Iaido classes every Thursday at 6:30 PM in the main dojo.
