This month our club participated in two very important kendo events in Europe. On the 16th of March in Kowno an international tournament for kids and teens took place The 4th Sugihara Kendo Tournament. Ala Mertuszka won a gold medal in the solo and team technique presentation category, which is a huge success.
A week later on the 23rd, we traveled to Zsambek (Hungary) to throw swords on a very prestige tournament Sakura Cup. From our club we had 4 contestants: Ala Mertuszka, Borys Rynkiewicz, Darek Karniewski and Mateusz Niewiadomski. The results of our contestants are very impressive. We are extremely proud and they are as follows. Mateusz won the gold medal in solo men category, Darek won bronze in the junior B (13 – 15 yo) and also was rewarded with a kantosho award for the best fighting spirit. In addition, a team from Poland (Mateusz, Katarzyna Babińska, Michalina Gąsienica-Laskowy, Marcin Głowacz) won the bronze medal.
Congratulations to everyone!
