Launch of Ken Jin Kan — The Gin Gin Kendo Club

I just wanted to provide a quick report on the first training session of the Gin Gin Kendo Club — Ken Jin Kan. The class ran longer than expected, with everyone enthusiastically participating in a class that covered the fundamentals of posture, footwork, and swinging the shinai.

It was wonderful to be able to introduce ten enthusiastic locals to their first steps in Kendo, and we hope to build on those numbers this week as we get a few more adults along to the session as well. 

Many thanks to Tamara Kelly and Ivan Hills for driving the organisation of this on the ground, including marshalling interest in the Gin Gin community, taking the administrative lead to set things up and participating in Kendo for the first time themselves.
