Sunday practice information

Copied from an email I sent earlier.

This Sunday, the ECUSKF will be holding a godo-geiko (joint practice) at the College Hill Rec Center from 10AM - 2PM. Because of that, instead of having practice at the usual location, we will go there instead. This particular practice is geared towards the kids that will be fighting in the Junior Nationals this Summer, but that only means that this practice will be harder than what you may have experienced. Regardless, everyone is invited to come and participate or watch.

Club News (8/10/18)

Good evening everyone,

This is yet another email with a lot of announcements, so without further ado...

- Just to remind everyone, there won't be regular practice at the Landen location on Sunday due to the Kentucky(-ish) tournament and promotion exam that's going on this weekend. Whether you plan on participating in the event(s) or not, you all should come if you're free. This is a great opportunity to meet and practice with people outside of those you normally practice with and potientially make some lifelong friendships with people from across the region. And if you practice with new people, that will only help your Kendo grow because you'll be dealing with techniques and fighting styles that you'd likely be unfamiliar with.

- Since this is a tournament that's being hosted by the Cincinnati Kendo clubs, there will be opportunities to help out at the tournament with regards to setup, tear-down and operations. Tomorrow at 8 P.M., several of us will be at the tournament location to help set up the courts and tables for the tournament. If you are able to come, not only will it expedite the setup process, but you'll get to see how tournaments are usually set up. During the tournament day, you'll be able to help with simple tasks like helping the competetors get ready for their matches and time keeping. If you're not sure about how to do any of that, no worries! We'll tell you what to do, and you'll have many people nearby to clarify things for you if you need it.

- I'm not sure if anyone has signed up for the Cleveland Kendo tournament. If you haven't, the due date is the 19th, so y'all should decide quickly! If you are participating, please let me know if you plan on doing the tournament and/or seminar so that I can send them the team roster. There's also an Iaido seminar on Sunday after the exam (the application form is at the bottom of the form). It's run pretty informally, and you don't need to know all of the kata to attend, so everyone should come!

- The membership dues for 2018 are coming up soon! If you want to join in on tournaments and promotion exams, you HAVE to sign up and get your membership number/update your membership. I received an email with more details last night, so expect a forwarded email about that some time tonight.

As always, let me know if you have any questions!

This Sunday's Practice (1/28/18)


There was a change to Ben-sensei's plans so he won't be able to lead practice on Sunday.  Because of this, there will be no practice at all this coming Sunday.


I'm just sending a notice that there will be no Iaido going on this Sunday since I will be out of town.  I was able to hand off the key to Ben-sensei, so Kendo should go on as normal.  If anything changes, I'll let you know.

Thanksgiving Holiday Practice

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, and the fact that nobody will be around to open the dojo, there will be no practice going on this coming Sunday in Landen.  Wednesday practice, for both Kendo and Iaido, will go as normal.

Location Change!!!!!!

As some of you have heard before, there were plans in the works for the owner of the Sunday practice location to move to a larger spot sometime this year.  Those plans are now underway!

Mary Tons of Martial Arts America offered to let us practice in their Landen location for the next two months while everything is set up in their new location.  So, starting today, we will be at the following address:

2906 US-22, Maineville, OH 45039

It's located in the Kroger Shopping center located under the big "Karate" sign.
