5th Annual Butokuden International Kendo Gasshuku

Kendo
January 17, 2017 Dear Kendo Friends and Senseis: As many of you know, I have been coaching the Portuguese National Team for the past 12 years. After building our Dojo, I started hosting annual Kendo Gasshukus here at our Dojo. This Gasshuku was originally designed as part of the training for the Portuguese Kendo leaders, mainly national team members and the Dojo Senseis.  I have set the objective of this Gasshuku to “Teach the correct Kendo and introduce the leaders with the correct method of teaching.” Since 2014, we have extended the invitation to not only Portuguese Kenshis, but to other countries as well. We have hosted Kenshis from various countries, such as Portugal, Mexico, Colombia, Aruba, Ecuador, Venezuela, Trinidad & Tobago, and Serbia. This year, we will be holding…
