Just about two months to go!

Mark the dates: the biggest tournament for children, junior and all kendokas under 2. dan grade,  in the  Central European region, the Sakura Cup will take place 7-9. April. The venue of the three-day tournament will be the same as a year ago the Zichy Miklós Elementary School in Zsámbék is about 35 kilometres from Budapest. Not just the venue, the categories will be the same, you can find the whole ruleset of the tournament here. The Sakura Cup is more than a tournament, and it will be more than that, in 2017 too: we will host a welcome keiko on 7th April, and a seminar on Sunday. 

The registration is up and running, the deadline is 3. April, and I really hope we will spend a good weekend of kendo together, and would like to welcome you at 24th edition of the Sakura Cup
