Cancellation of the 2022 Australian Kendo Championships & Australian Masters Games Kendo event

At the AKR Annual General Meeting on 16-17 October 2021, the National Council has made the decision to cancel the following events:

2022 Australian Kendo Championships

2022 Australian Masters Games Kendo event

It was a challenging issue and a difficult decision for the National Council to make. The primary reason for cancelling the events was the lack of certainty associated with the current COVID-19 situation and regulations pertaining to travel and vaccination on a national basis.

The Kendo Board will continue to monitor the situation and assess the feasibility of options as the situation changes. Kendo members who have questions may contact the Kendo Board by email at
