Susumu Takanabe Sensei (Kanagawa Police Department Instructor, 2010 AJKF Champion) will be visiting the western United States in mid-November. A special seminar will be held, followed by keiko. This is a unique opportunity for Bay Area kendoka, and should not be missed. If you are an NCKF member, this event is free; however, donations are welcome.

Date: Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Time: 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
Location: Mountain View Buddhist Temple (MVKD's Monday practice location, see Practice Location and Time for directions).

UPDATE (11/03/11): Takanabe Sensei is also the 2011 AJKF Champion. The 59th AJKF Championship was held on November 2, 2011; details can be found here.

UPDATE (11/11/11): If you arrive after 6:45pm, please do not use the side entrance to the MVBT gym (the one that we normally use for entry) to avoid crowding the area where most of the sensei will congregate. Instead, use the entrance behind the seating area.
