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.

Congratulations to:

Mike Mansfield - 2 Dan

Steve Rennell - 4 Kyu

Stephen Chalmers - 4 Kyu
