The weekend of the 28-29 Oct saw Iaidoka from around New Zealand gather to hone their kata and learn from each other.
This years theme for the event was "fundamentals (kihon)". Getting back and improving our basics is something everyone needs to continue to do.
To round out the event, 3 of the 4 attending Wellington Iaido Club member that attended challenged gradings and I'm happy to announce that all have passed.
Mike Mansfield - 2 Dan
Steve Rennell - 4 Kyu
Stephen Chalmers - 4 Kyu
Now we must pass on our knowledge to our kohai!
