SCKF is hosting a youth practice, in place of the SCKF Team Championships
normally held on the last Sunday of September.
With the understanding most dojos are just or will soon be starting their
journey to get back to "normal" Kendo life, this Youth Practice will not be
difficult and will be filled with multiple breaks. As Abe Sensei stated in
the past few board meetings, the main purpose of this event is to help the
SCKF youth to continue to be motivated in Kendo after an extended break due
The Youth Practice will be restricted to youths between 12 to 18 years of age
(with full bogu) who are fully vaccinated. Also, the parents or anyone who
wishes to watch the practice will require to be vaccinated. Proof of
vaccination will be handled at the dojo level. Due to safety for everyone,
anyone who attends unannounced may be turned away. There will NOT be any fee
for this event, however, a donation will be greatly appreciated.
All other information is listed in the attached excel file. The due date is
set for Saturday, September, 4th, 2021. If you have any question, feel free
The Terasaki Budokan does have a parking structure but there will be a parking
fee. We are not certain how much the fee will be but believe to be somewhere
between $7 to $10. The parking structure will have a machine where you can
pay your fee and leave the ticket on your dashboard.
There are only 55 parking spaces in the structure so carpooling is highly
recommended. From my understanding there will be another small group at the
Budokan and the parking will be open to the public. There is also street
parking in front of the facility.
We will have a sign up table set up, so please have everyone sign up at the
table before entering the gym. A reminder that if you are not vaccinated we
will need a negative test results 72 hours prior to the Youth Practice.
Everyone who have signed up are vaccinated so I don't think there will be
