8th Setsuko Kobayashi ‘Fine Ladies’ Kendo Seminar
with Mayumi Inoue Kyoshi Nanadan assisted by Kazuyo Matsuda Renshi Nanadan, Remi Kono Godan and Megumi Genda Godan
28-30 June 2019
The 13th Ladies Kendo Seminar organised and hosted by Kodokan. This year we will continue to study the particular issues found in female kendo and learn how to overcome the associated problems following on from last year’s seminar lead by Inoue sensei and Matsuda sensei.
The event attracts female kenshi from all over Europe. We focus on the female kendo whilst practising basic and advanced exercises, with the main theme being the Kobayashi Method throughout the seminar.
This year for the first time, these teachers will discuss female kendo armour as evidence shows how difficult for female kenshi to choose their right size and shaped armour. If you have specific questions this is a great opportunity to get some experienced teachers’ opinions on female specific issues on armour.
