Instructor of our kendo club, Julian Górski spent several days during december last year in Lindow (Germany), where the kangeiko (kendo sport meeting) took place. It was from 26th to 31th december and the trainings were really hard and intensive. Among kendo teachers, who led kangeiko were: Sensei Takeshi Tosu (8 Dan Kyoshi) and Sensei Makoto Matsuoka (7 Dan). We hope large part of gained knowledge during kangeiko will also spread among students of Ryushinkai kendo club.
At the end of kangeiko some kendoka took part in dan examinations, including Julian. He succeeded and now has 3rd dan degree. Congratulations!

We’ve begun to popularize kendo in pre-schools of Wroclaw. Youngest children seems to be very interested - they respond spontaneously and joyfully. We consider this as a chance for recruitment future adepts of Japanese fencing.

Julian Górski about his visit in Sapporo:
During days: 19 September – 10 October I had the opportunity to practice kendo in Japan, in Capital of Hokkaido – Sapporo City. I trained very intensively, at the four dojos: Yoshinkan, Sapporo Chuo Taikukan, Chika Dojo and at the Hokkaido University Dojo. I had also very good opportunity to practice both basic and advanced techniques of kendo under guidance of following teachers: Yamashiro sensei (8th dan), Suzuki sensei (8th dan), Kunita sensei (7th dan), Eiga sensei (7th dan), Akikawa sensei (6th dan) and many others. I truly believe that my knowledge of kendo, which I gained during staying at Sapporo I will share among the adepts of our Ryushinkai Kendo Club.
