  • Shido geiko goals
    • improve members' kendo basics to increase their enjoyment and longevity in the art
    • provide the opportunity for regular keiko with high ranking sensei
    • prepare our members for shinsa, including how to test and what shinsa-in are looking for
    • hold keiko at times and places that will allow more people to participate
  • General notes
    • 2-hour keiko generally held on Sundays, but could be Saturday
    • facility ideally accommodates keiko and parking for 50+ participants
    • start time between 10am and 3pm, to allow travel time for distant kenshi
    • hosted by volunteer dojos, as a service to SCKF as well as their own members
    • host dojo selects day and time, depending on their members' and facility schedules; see also toban notes below
    • participants: 1dan and above
      kyu members of hosting and toban dojo may attend (as an incentive to host)
    • yudansha attendance will be recorded (see attendance record)
    • colored rank band on tare:
      6D=red, 5D=orange, 4D=yellow, 3D=blue (tape), 2D=green, 1D=white, kyu=none
  • Budget
    • facility $150-250 (for 3 hours = 2hr keiko plus 30min setup/clean up)
    • refreshments $50 (mainly water/drinks)
    • light meal for 7dan/motodachi sensei $100
      note: plan for ten motodachi (ideally all 7dan sensei, but if not sufficient then 6dan and even 5dan may be asked to help out)
    • follow the SCKF reimbursement procedure to get reimbursed (receipts required)
  • Toban duties:
    • Sign in table: conduct sign in and distribute rank tags
    • Warm up leader (for junbi undo)
    • Timekeeper(s): for mawari geiko and mogi shinsa

    • Bento or light meal for motodachi sensei (reimbursed by SCKF, see more notes below)
    • Optional: light snacks (donate, or fit into refreshment budget)
    • Optional: bento or light meal for kenshi (can charge)
  • Other toban notes:
    • If toban dojo wishes to specify another facility, please do so with enough time to announce at least 2 months in advance. However, if changing start time (must be between 10am to 3pm inclusive) or changing the day to Saturday, please announce at least 6 months in advance. This is so kenshi have sufficient warning to set their calendars. Refer to 2019 calendar for potential event conflicts.
    • If toban dojo needs to swap dates with another dojo, please arrange it between yourselves, then notify SCKF so the change can be announced and posted.
    • Bento for motodachi sensei:
      • budget is $150 total for refreshments and bento
      • if pre-ordering, assume 10 bento needed
      • if waiting to see how many motodachi are actually present that day, be sure to have someone not in bogu available to handle ordering and pickup
      • some possibilities for on-the-spot ordering from Best Dance Studio:
