November 11, 2015 – Kent, WA – The Pacific Northwest Kendo Federation (PNKF) holds this tournament every Fall. It’s the largest tournament in the Northwest. It usually has about 350 contestants from California, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, the Midwest, as well as the 22 kendo schools in the Northwest.

Competition Results

Spokane Kendo Club fielded a very small group this time around, sending only five members to compete across three different divisions, but what they lacked in numbers they made up for in effort, spirit and energy.

Eisuke Hashimoto, a newcomer to our dojo from Japan, kicked things off with a bang in the High School Boys division, winning his first match 2-0 in under a minute.  He set a standard for the rest of the team that inspired them to follow suit.  Unfortunately he ran into Okitsu from Tozenji dojo in Canada in his second match and couldn’t quite overcome him.  Okitsu would go on to win the High School Boys division that day.
