Kyudo Japan Tour 2015

On the 2nd of April 2015 three members from the South African Kyudo Renmei left for Japan to take part in the Fourth Oceania Kyudo Seminar and Grading in Nagoya.

This year was especially exciting for us as we had the chance to take part in a friendly tournament held at Meiji Mura. The Princess of Japan was present at this event and watched us all shoot. This was the first time members from South Africa took part in such an event.

The trip was a great success with members from South Africa achieving a 100% pass rate,

The Members are:

Jade Thorpe (San Dan)

Biljana Vucetic (Ni Dan)

Victoria Mearns (Ni Dan)


 

2014

 

Kyudo Japan Tour 2014-04-25 On the 10th April 2014 seven members from the South African Kyudo Renmei left for Japan to take part in the Third Oceania Kyudo Seminar and Grading in Nagoya. The trip was a great success with members from South Africa achieving a 100% pass rate, The Sensei (Hanshi 8th Dan) teaching at the seminar were very impressed with our quality of Kyudo and we received many great comments in relation to our Tai Hai and shooting technique. I would like to congratulate the below students on the passing of their Shodan, I am extremely proud of you all! Sean Cunningham Mondise Sithole Victoria Mearns Bibi Vucetic Math Robson Thavenesh Reddy I would especially like to thank both Travis and Miki for accompanying us on this trip. I trust you enjoyed yourselves. We all appreciate the support and assistance you gave us all on this tour and sincerely hope to have you with us again on the next one.  As the seminar and grading was only four days we were able to travel and see much of Japan visiting Chiba, Nagoya and sight seeing in Kyoto. It was a wonderful trip with many amazing memories that I don't think any of us will forget soon.  I look forward to our next trip in 2016 and hopefully further impressing the Japanese, yet again at our high standard of Kyudo.
