2 of my Sho kids at kendo

Two of my super-cool Elementary students from Taisha Sho at Thursday night kendo practice, which allows the local elementary kids who are into Kendo to practice against the more experienced Junior High team members.
Many of the students who join the Kendo team in 7th grade have already been playing kendo for many years at elementary school. So you can see why I'm having difficulty getting the hang of it, considering I'd never even heard of kendo 9 months ago.
