Welcome to 2022

Updated: Jan 4, 2022

2021 was over in a blur, perhaps due to the almost-uninterrupted year of training that we had! It was a busy, BUSY year! Take a look at that busy year via this video summary:

We finished the year off with a BANG (quite literally) with a final "balloon wars" session! The preview and full video is listed below::

We also has some awards for some of our members! Take a look a the full role of awards via this link ( ), as well as a video of that awards ceremony:

And here were are - 2022! We started the year with some online training, namely 1,000 (SEN) suburi! Initially intended to be done just midnight on New Year's eve, but, it was decided to rather do it the following morning so as to allow those members who can no longer stay awake till midnight an opportunity to also take part! :p

Our full training session (1h20) can be found on YouTube for anyone to take part in. Such was the case of John CHU, a Kenshi from Ottawa, Canada who took took part via the recorded session for his 54th birthday! Well done, John!

Although the 1,000 suburi may have felt daunting for some, but breaking the 1,000 suburi down into bite-sized chunks, AND keeping thing interesting, we we all able to complete the 1,000 suburi!

Let it be a lesson for the year that for any goal that we have set ourselves for 2022 and beyond: as long as it is broken down into manageable milestones, AND we keep the path "interesting", we can accomplish ANYTHING!

Have a FANTASTIC 2022 year of good Kendo, Iaido and Jodo training!
