We encourage all female kendo practitioners to participate and support this event.
We ask that all clubs please support their female members to attend.

This will be an epic seminar and not to be missed!!

Venue: Victoria University, Footscray Park Campus, Ballarat Rd, Footscray, 3011.


We have had to increase the registration fee to $110 (plus a provider service fee of about $5.00) this time, as we are hosting many more sensei and students.  Unfortunately this also means that we cannot offer the early bird discount.  We hope participants will understand and continue to support this event. Lunches are included in registration fee, an additional seminar dinner cost will be approximately $35. There will be an information pack sent to you once you have registered.
