Kendo Workshop

Location: Toin Gakuen - Yokohama, Japan

Mr. Koabayashi (Kendo teacher/coach) took us for a 50 minute Kendo workshop. The boys (and I, although I was only taking photos) loved it. Learning how to put on the gear was just as interesting as learning how to fight with the Shinai (bamboo kendo sticks).

The boys line up with their Shinai as Mr Kobayashi gives instructions.

Our first photo with the Japanese teachers. T for TIES (Toin International Exchange Students).

The boys were not used to having to sit on their knees for long periods of time. Andy especially found it difficult...

Milan listening carefully as he follows instrucions.

Putting on the gear was more complicated than expected. We had to get a bit of help from the master.

William really looked the part.

Now fully equipped. On to learning the moves.

Amarind finally manages to get his full outfit on!

Milan and William battle.

Jack was quite the natural with learning all the kndo moves.

Final photo with the whole crew.

Milan and William took a little while to get the hang of the moves but evetually managed to put all the moves together.
