Unfortunately, we have to postpone the resumption of kendo training in the gym, as the government of Quebec announced that Montreal to be in Red zone and is restricting its activities from October 1 to 28.
Although they did not ban all indoor sport activities, we made this difficult decision in the collective effort to protect our members from the COVID-19 infection and slow its propagation in the region.
We know that we miss practicing together in dojo, but in the mean time, we strongly encourage you, especially who wanted to come back to the gym, to participate in the Zoom practice made available for you.
The instructors make effort to make it accessible and meaningful to all participants, but we will need your active participation to make it happen. This will help us keep training kendo together and stay in shape.
It will also bring up our spirits by seeing familiar faces we miss. Some of you might miss only bogu practice, but there are many ways to train for Kendo and those "other" ways are all important!
While waiting for the training to resume, we also would like everyone to check your shinai, wash your keiko-gi and hakama, clean your bogu, and prepare Men-masks and protective gears for bogu practice.
We are excited to announce that practices and classes of the Montreal Kendo Club will resume in the coming weeks.
The senseis and instructors are hard at work to design and implement procedures to create a safe environment for all.
We have sent an email to our mailing list with first steps. If you have not received it, please check your spam folder or email email@example.com for a copy.
We will limit access to registered members only for now (no visitors).
