See you all next year for "Win a Trip to Japan XI"!
It was a short but intense experience for this year's winner, Veronika Orash, coming from Switzerland, for a packed 3 days of training and international friendship around Budō practice.
After a warm-up session with Tozando Kendo team at Shiga prefectural Budokan, en route the next day for the legendary Kyōto Butokuden for an intensive boot camp training with lots of prestigious guests. Among those was Kiwada Sensei, who does us the great honor of leading practice since last edition. We also had the pleasure to welcome this year's All Japan Kendō champion, Hidehisa Nishimura.
We hope our guests made lifetime memory here, and brought home some precious insights for the benefit of their practice, along with President Kimura's message of Tozando's mission on helping spread the Budō around the world.
