Greetings Kendo Ontario Community!

We hope you and your family and friends are healthy and safe.  Kendo Ontario continues to promote Kendo and the importance of community during these ‘unprecedented times’ and is pleased to host Two (2) upcoming ‘zoom’ events to close the year.

1. Junior Kendo meets Team Canada: Sun Dec 6 @ 10:00am – 12:00pm
2. Senior Kendo Social MeetUp: Thu Dec 10 @ 8:00 – 9:00pm

About ‘Junior Kendo Meets Team Canada’

All Junior Kendo members are encouraged to join this event and interact with members of Team Canada in a series of fun activities.  All ages are welcome!

Details of this event will be sent out early next week!

About ‘Senior Kendo Social MeetUp’

Senior Kendo members also need to reconnect, especially given we have not been able to share keiko over the past 8+ months.  Similar to the year’s Social MeetUps at the Canadian Kendo Federation’s Virtual sessions in July and Kendo Ontario’s Bokuto Ni Yoru Kendo Kihon Waza Keiko Ho seminar, we will be mixing attendees randomly into smaller groups and into different ‘break out rooms’ to socialize.  It will be a good opportunity to meet new Kendo people or re-establish old relationships as we close the year.  Participants are encouraged to bring a drink (or two) and be prepared to reminisce, share stories and enjoy the ‘virtual’ company of their fellow Kendoka.

Date:                  Thursday December 10, 2020
Time:                 8pm – 9:00pm (may vary depending on number of attendees)
Preparation:  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own ‘refreshments’

Please see your Club Instructor or Club Leader for the Zoom link

It’s unfortunate that we are not able to meet and practice together as we have in the past but we hope these events will enable the members of our Kendo community to stay connected as we close and celebrate the end of 2020.

Thank you for the ongoing support,

Bryan Asa
