I have great pleasure to announce Mr David Bryce as the regional junior coach for Scotland.

David brings a wealth of experience for one so young to the project and I am sure he will excel in the role. David was a GB junior competitor and progressed to U 21 captain and senior GB participation. He regularly attends seminars and gradings and is very much in touch with the needs of coaching at junior level.

David will start by liaising with dojo in the region and organise six specific junior sessions per year as well as monitoring progress with dojo leaders and providing help and support where necessary.
We have a budget for these sessions and they will be free of charge to attendees. Also, food/drink will be provided for juniors and parents.

Another part of the job is to liaise with colleges and Universities to provide help and support and to actively encourage students to continue kendo without interrupting studies, hopefully filling the void we currently experience.

Further information will be distributed to dojo leaders with contact details for David.
Further regional projects will be announced shortly.

If there any questions/suggestions please contact me, Malcolm Goodwin.
