Requirements: You must be a QKR financial member (non-member guests will need prior approval from the QKR management Committee), and you must agree to the rules below.

Rules:

  1. Everyone is equal at this training (no sensei), and must treat each other with respect, care, kindness and politeness. Unnecessary aggression will not be tolerated.
  2. Everyone’s safety is of upmost importance – both psychological safety and wellbeing, and physical safety – manage your own safety and that of others at all times.
  3. No instruction (except for individual advice if necessary – but avoid stopping keiko to give advice).
  4. Call out and report any behaviours (to the QKR) that are not in line with the AKR Policies: Code of Conduct; Member Protection; Child safety; Improper use of drugs and medicine.
  5. Step out to rest at any time – manage your own fatigue.
  6. Check your equipment before keiko starts.
  7. Everyone is welcome regardless of age and grading, but you must be in bogu. If you are a beginner announce this at bow-in time.
  8. Respect everyone’s style of kendo. This training follows immediately after QLD Squad Training, so some members will be in shiai-kendo mode – please respect this.
  9. This is a friendly keiko – please retain the friendly atmosphere during the keiko.
  10. Everyone must have paid their fees – this will be checked.
  11. We will usually go for a bite to eat and drinks afterwards in Southbank. Everyone is welcome!

You must register and pay the fee before attending any of the sessions. Please register and ay via https://events.humanitix.com/queensland-kendo-renmei-inter-club-training-july-dec-2024
