Shiraoka Kendo Kai

Farewell 2016

Balloon Geiko 2016

The last keiko of the year involved the traditional end of year ritual of balloon geiko. With balloons attached to the top of the men kendoka utilize all their training and skill to pop their opponents balloons.

Jan Mendoza, a third dan from Canada came along and was kind enough to join us in balloon geiko, as well as the more serious elements of kendo.

Here’s hoping that 2017 is an eventful year for Shiraoka!
