Special thanks to Imanishi sensei and the following members of Seattle Kendo Kai who gave a wonderful demonstration of the Bokuto ni yoru kendo kihon waza keiko ho. Going forward, the AUSKF will be following AJKF and FIK in  requiring all 2-kyu candidates to demonstrate this. We have been lucky at SKK to have adopted this waza practice for many years as a teaching tool for beginners, both youth and adult, to help them learn the proper handling and reiho of the sword and inform their shinai practice more fully.

Participants: Nagato Orita, Aneurin Mabale, Denise Quach, Ffion Mabale
