Kendo practice tourney @ TJH - 29
Originally uploaded by Jason In Japan.
The boys kendo team from my school, Taisha Jr High, recently won the Shimane regional competition and will now go on to represent Shimane at the Chugoku regional competition. Go Team!
Click here for some pictures of a practice tournament my school hosted back in July to help the kids practice for the Shimane tournament.
I still pracitce with the team, but not as much as I used to. I usually don't get fully suited out - but I will a few more times before I leave next year. The players in this picture are girls from another school. My team has 5 female players, and about 16 male players spread out over the 3 grade levels.
