The clash of bamboo shinai,
charging fully armoured athletes and the yell of the warrior’s spirit. These
are just some of the sights and sounds that spectators will enjoy during the Garden’s
moonlight viewing on September 22nd. Ryan Kim from the Lethbridge Kendo Club
will be leading this special evening demonstration. Visit the Garden to learn
about the rules, techniques and culture of this iconic Japanese martial art.
This day also will feature an iaido demonstration by Dave Rathnow of Shin Ken Kai Iaido Dojo. This Japanese martial art emphasises the smooth drawing, swinging and sheathing of the sword.
Come watch Mr. Rathnow and his students demostration in the Pavilion. The visual will take you back in time and provide an experience that you will learn from and admire.
The Iaido Demostration will be at 3:00pm in the Pavilion at Nikka Yuko.

is free for season pass holders.
