As you probably know, Sueno Sensei (Hanshi 8 Dan) is one of the most famous Sensei in Japan. He has a long list of achievements, but here are some of the main ones:

1974: All Japan Police Kendo Championships 1st Place (Individual)
1977: All Japan Kendo Championships 2nd Place (Individual)
1979: All Japan Kendo Championships 1st Place (Individual)
1982: World Kendo Championships 1st Place (Team)

I have been to Sueno Sensei’s seminar in the past, and I enjoyed very much. It is very informative, and there is so much to learn from him. I would strongly suggest you attend this seminar.

Hope to see you all!
