August 2009 | Interchanging experience

Shidokan Senior members understand that to keep up a good kendo level, one can not stop training that's why we would like to thank Ariyama sensei and the Montreal Kendo Club for letting us practice at their Dojo while Shidokan's floor was being renewed.

We've had the opportunity to practice not only with the MKC members but also with McGill Kendo club members who where visiting MKC as well.

Great Kendo spirit, great experience and of course... Beer !
Let's keep it up and work harder this coming season !
