The Special Seminar: 10-12 June 2022

The first contact between Ariga Sensei and Portuguese Kenshi, 11th WKC Santa Clara, California

During the 11th World Kendo Championships in Santa Clara, California, Ariga Sensei met several Portuguese Kenshi and it was the start of long friendship. After several years of maintaining contact with Portuguese Kenshi and learning of their strugles in developing Kendo in Portugal, Ariga Sensei took up the challenge of helping them by acepting an invitation from the Portuguese Kendo Association to lead a Kendo Seminar in Portugal, thus was born the International Ariga Seminar.

Every year since 2005 Ariga Sensei visits Portugal with several Sensei accompanying him for a great weekend of Kendo and friendship, we hope to count on you to join us!
