9.-10.12.2017 @ Jyväskylä
We did good! Again!
The annual Finnish Champs were held this year at Jyväskylä and our five-member team packed itself into a car (yes, in one car) and drove to fight for glory and merit once more!
Some excitement was experienced even before the competitions began as one of our team member was registered for the Individual Competition only hours before the competition started!
On the spot, the weekend consisted of well fought matches of high level kendo + some refereeing in sweaty gear between the matches. (Important kendo accessory: wool socks!)
The Result of the Weekend:
1 gold for Merci (Women's Individual Competition)
1 silver for Otto (Men's Individual Competition)
2 bronzes for Saara and Jenni (Women's Individual Competition)
SILVER for the the whole awesome team of HY-KENDO!!
+ A little weird factoid: we all have long hair, ERGO:
(And some silver as well.)
PS: This year the team gold went to our arch enemy Ki-Ken-Tai-Icchi. Well done, guys! (And see you next year!)
