Congratulations to the winners and participants. Well done!

We like to thank not only the competitors, but other kenshi in the dojos that helped them train hard.
Special thanks to the parents and families as well as the senseis and coaches.
Let these junior kenshi be an inspiration to us all, for 2017 and for our journey on the path of Kendo!
