It is valuable for a middle and high school student to experience
international and intercultural understanding. AUSKF offers the
opportunity for American teenage kendoists (15-18yrs) to be exposed
in Japanese culture directly, and share one week with Japanese teenagers
through Kendo activities instructed by MR. Kojiro Migita (Champion of All
Japan Kendo Championship 1976, Kendo Kyoshi 8 dan). Also, traditional
Japanese cultural activities such as Zen meditation, calligraphy, tea
ceremony, flower arrangements and pottery will be part of the program.
A visitation to "Reigando" cave (where Musashi Miyamoto wrote "Book of
Five Rings"), Miyamoto Musashi Museum, and Kumamoto Castle (considered
one of the three magnificent castles of Japan) will be part of the program
This event is to develop Japanese-American friendly relationship of
teenagers and prosperity for American Kendo. Participants are expected
to represent American Kendo in the next generation.
