6th kyu in kendo

14 Dec 2007 20:38:07 misc

After years of hesitation I finally decided to take new path in my life and start a hobby that didn’t have computers in it. I signed up for kendo lessons. After three months of practicing twice a week our group reached the graduation day. 6th kyu, nothing more, nothing less.

What next? We are now allowed to practice with others, far more advanced students. It is now also possible to start doing iaido lessons, which is actually the main reason why I signed up in the first place. Whatever I keep doing kendo or not is still kind of open question: there’s much I like here, but iaido was the driving force. Besides, this whole thing can take huge amounts of time and right now I have limited supply of that luxury.
