On the 16th of March 2019, the Penang Kendo Club organized a seminar by Kaida sensei, 8th Dan hanshi, and Suda sensei, 7th Dan kyoshi. This was Kaida sensei’s 4th visit to Penang, and Suda sensei’s 2nd. This year Kaida sensei focused on the topic of taichiai and the seminar attendees, which included our friends and senseis from other parts of Malaysia including Perak and KL, received many valuable tips during the seminar.
This was followed the same evening by a celebration dinner to welcome our guests of honour back to Penang. At the same dinner, we also took the opportunity to have a grand send off for PKC’s own Katou sensei and his family, who were returning to Japan in the spring after spending 3 years in Penang.
The following day, we held a special keiko session in the morning with our visitors. The Penang Kendo Club is truly grateful to Kaida sensei and Suda sensei for taking their time to share their precious knowledge and experience with us. See you again next year!
