National exams

Last Sunday national exams were held during the kendo central training.  The exam was a true massacre but Bennie and Rapheal were well prepared because of the in-house exams that were held the day before and they did a terrific job.    With a nice 100% score for Kendo Kai Den Haag we returned home. Bennie is now Ikkyu and Rapheal Shodan.

Congratulations guys!


In-house grading

Last Saturday, concurrently with the completion of the beginner courses, the in-house exams were held. Practitioners of all disciplines could  take an exam(this was of course free of charge). A lot of mudansha attended and even though the results varied everyone did very well. 

We would like to congratulate all graduates wholeheartedly with obtaining their kyu grade. We hope the feedback can provide you with some goals for your road to ikkyu.
