We have invited Rika Mitsuhashi Senpai (4th from the left) for a 2 day Gasshuku for girls when she came to visit Philippines. She trained with us for a few years and with her short trip we prepared a Gasshuku where she can share and demonstrate her knowledge in Kendo. Last Sunday, we began early in the morning with a warm up and kihon. She broke down some of the movements to help us understand what we need to improve on. Nearing the end of the session, Akita sensei provided additional teaching and provided input regarding shiai techniques as well. We ended the day with some Korean meals and a cool bowl of Patbingsoo.
