Joint Dojo Kendo Practice at Tunbridge Wells

A sizeable cross-section of ranks all met on Sunday morning at the Tunbridge dojo in Skinners School for a very good session in basic Kendo under the guidance of three nanadan sensei and other senior yudansha from over the south-east. All members and others who wish to advance their Kendo in a comradely manner amongst others who feel the same way – and without reservations because of fancied affiliations – are always welcome to join in and benefit. This is always the ‘Way of Kendo’.
