Hello all

My name is Chia and I'm from the UK.

Currently ranked at Ikque Level (spelling on that?) but I haven't been participating for a couple of years due to travelling and personal issues. Though I should be going back to my club in September with the new intake of University students who will all get scared off.

Anyone else a UK participant?

Hello Chia. To be honest with everyone, I am still much a newbie. I am currently taking a Kendo class at my University, but I am going to graduate soon. Though, I do wish to find a Dojo that I can train at, as I have taken a great like to Kendo. Therefore, I am still a ryokyu. I guess that means you two are my senpai ^^

Hey guys! This seems like as good a place as any to introduce myself.

I'm Nynn. I'm Australian but I'm currently living in Japan teaching English. I'm ni-Dan and I have my first try at a san-Dan grading at the end of this month. smilies/icon_eek.gif I'm feeling rather nervous about it!

Nice to meet you all!

I'm Ekimal. I've been practicing kendo at my university for three years and I achieved the rank of ikkyu only a couple weeks ago.
I also practice European fencing.
Good luck Nynn!

yay it's nice to have so many different peoples though, there's lots of things to talk about which is cool.

I can't wait to get back to kendo but I've got a few months to go yet, will have to actually check my stuff cause it hasn't been used for a while.

Did untangle the strings from my Men though, as somehow I hadn't put them away correctly but a good tidy up is what they're going to need

and definately break a leg - theatrical term, not literal - on the san-dan attempt Nynn. I should have really gone for my Dan grade before I went to the second uni but didn't have the time or the resources.

It shall be interesting going back

Yea it's nice to have such a mix of cultures. I'm American so i wasn't really expecting so many European members. ^_^
good luck nynn if you pass then you be equal to the highest senpai at my dojo. >w<

@Chia: if there wasn't the issue of the atlantic ocean i'd offer to train with you. it's the thought that counts i guess.
