This event is one of very few opportunities for Australian Kendo players to test their skills against the worlds best Kendoka in a very challenging and competitive situation. AKR was invited to submit one player each for three of the competition categories.
Mens Youth Individual, age 18-25.
Mens Individual, age 26-55 and 5, 6 or 7 Dan.
Womens Individual, age 21-40 and 3, 4 or 5 Dan.
Following observation at the recent 38th Australian Kendo Championships and further consideration, the AKR Kendo Board and others, have selected Kirby Smith Sensei: multiple Australian Open Kendo Champion and Australian Kendo Team member for World Kendo Championships - to represent in Mens Individual competition.
Congratulations to Kirby Smith Sensei. Best wishes for your preparation!
