Last Sunday was a successful day. The atmosphere was pleasant, the experience you get in participating in these kind of tournament for the participants and judges are tremendous. There were also iaidoka's who came from Belgium and each of them came home with prizes. One of them also had won the first prize in his pool. Two of our members Marcin Boratynski (his first tournament ever) and Baurzhan Murzamadigev (second time) also had a succesful day.

Marcin Boratynski: Pool: 3rd place/ Single kata: 3rd place
Baurzhan Murzamadigev: Pool: 1st place (last year also 1st place) / Single Kata: 3rd place
See you all again at the Ishidocup!

Each year, Tomo no Kai dojo in cooperation with the NKR, organise a tournament for iaidoka who do not have the 1st-Dan. The whole event is aimed for a fun and experience way with iaido in a competitive form. Afterwards there will be a short training where you can get personal feedback from the referees.
Of course, this is also an excellent preparation for exams. In short: a must for any mudan in iaido!
The tournament is on Sunday, November 30th, in the afternoon. In the morning there is as usual a seminar for (applicant-)referees from 3rd-Dan and higher up, who then learn how to referee and can use this referee practice in your tournament.
More information can be found below in 2 PDF files. (How ever it's originally written in dutch language). Note the deadline for both events are on: November 15th.
