Sumi sensei seminar 2017

Posted on September 25 2017

4 November. The 4th Sumi sensei kendo seminar with participants from Belgium, Luxembourg and Taiwan. Vietnam was also present and watchful.
Another successful seminar with a lot of tai-atari training without pushing (with your arms to other parts of the upper body above the stomach is a warning (violence)) and a lot of training in suriage waza, various Oji waza, omote and ura, techniques. Maybe too much to remember.
Next year will also be fun, 5 years Sumi sensei and 40 years Nami Kai, maybe there will come more kendo sensei's to Middelburg, Harada sensei and Kakehashi sensei (former WKC one of the top kendoka's from Japan) from Fukuoka both from the Police.
Pay close attention to our NK website for more info.

Sei Shin Kan seminar with Kim sensei

Posted on September 25 2017

A Korean kumdo weakend with Kim sensei from Korea, just a little bit different than last August with Sumi sensei at the University of Education.
From a middle distance kendo / kumdo training with fast ashi sabaki and a unfollowable kote technique, that will be hard training to learn some kumdo techniques. For older people who still practise kendo or kumdo a recommendation and different view on your own practise.
After the training nice outgoing Chinese dinner in a large All-You-Can-Eat Chinese eating factory. Wonderfully enjoying yourself, those Chinese snacks were disgustingly tasty!

Japan 2017 Part II Training and Mokkei so

Posted on September 06 2017

After arrival of the Nami Kai group to Mokkei so the first practice by Sumi sensei. As always the training by Sumi sensei and also Honda sensei were top quality. During practice the University had visit from kendo from Shimonoseki and others. All participants of the Nami Kai group have learned a lot during the period. Training at summer temperatures of almost 40 degrees Celsius was harder than expected. After training a nice cool down with water. In mokkei so recovery with some bento and of course a beer after practice.

Nami Kai would like to thank Sumi sensei, Honda sensei, Mokkei so, and the students for this wonderful experience.
