2012 – Eikenkai in Scotland

Exactly 2 years after the first Eikenkai in Scotland seminar I returned to Edinburgh and held another. In amongst the busy backdrop of the Olympic and Edinburgh festival mayhem around 30 people spent a couple of days together doing kendo, drinking beer, eating curry, and generally having a fun time.

The Saturday session ran for about five and 1/2 hours and the Sunday session was about two and 1/2. In between we went to a great Indian place and managed to spend over 500 pounds on curry and beer for 20 people!!!

Grade ranges went from ikkyu to rokudan, and we had visitors travel up from London and Manchester, as well as Belgium and Holland.

I’m looking forward to doing another in a couple of years time!!!
