Women in Kendo at the 5th US Nito Seminar

June 30th-July 1st, McMinnville, Oregon. 3 sensei from Musashi Kai in Japan, including Ako Ishimura sensei, 6dan (pictured below, center) who passed the kodansha exam doing nito! She will be in the women’s All Japan Taikai next month as well. Good luck Ishimura sensei!

We also had the pleasure of instruction from Hirotsugu Sasaki sensei, 7dan kyoshi and Ryoichi Fujii sensei, 7dan kiyoshi. Fantastic seminar-whether you’ve done nito before or not, if you get a chance to go in 2013, go!
