Greeting from Vancouver dojo

Hi All,

Looking back to this year, our biggest Iaido event was the Kokusai Renmei Taikai/Seminar in May.
It was quite successful & almost same scale as German one. Also the first Kokusai Taikai event in over sea.

I really thank you to all dojo heads in US & Canada who send many students for support our seminar.
Without such support from other dojos, this kind of big event is not possible.

Also Thank you very much to our dojo's Core Members for many hard work to make seminar went smooth.
you guys are next generation of Vancouver dojo.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ! everyone.
Year 2014, another Kokusai Renmei seminar will be on in Boston.
* Let's encourage Boston seminar. (Aug. 1st, 2nd & 3rd)
