New Zealand World Kendo Team Fundraiser: 1000-cut-a-thon
March 31, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Canterbury and Nelson Kendo Clubs join forces to complete 1000 booming cuts in the Kaikoura ampitheatre / Village Green in an effort to raise at least $1000 for the South Island NZ representatives.
Kendo is the Japanese martial art of sword-fighting.
The Kendo World Championships – the Olympics of the Kendo world – will be held this September in South Korea. We have four NZ Team members in the South Island, each required to pay between $6000-$7000 to attend pre-competition training in Japan and the event in Korea.
Donations can be made online at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/help-canterburys-nz-reps-get-to-the-kendo-world or in person on the day.
