Visit by Kanto Gakuren University Students

  • message from Yuge sensei

    We will be visited by Kanto Gakuren (university students from Kanto Region of Japan). They are very eager to have a nice keiko and goodwill matches with kenshi and sensei from AUSKF. They are lead by Sato Nariaki sensei and Maeda Masaru sensei, with 7 women kenshi and 13 men kenshi (see delegation roster). There are even a few kenshi visiting from Texas just to have the opportunity to meet and keiko with the students.

    All kenshi may come, especially high school age kenshi and young adults. It will be a wonderful experience for them. (Sensei please come too!...we will also need your help for shinpan! Please try to attend!)
