The club will be participating at the Kampsportsfestivalen martial arts fair at Stockholmsmässan during the weekend 1-2 December. Apart from demonstrations, an installment of the Swedish Cup competition will also be held, as well as a kyu grade examination. Click the image below for more information.
This year's Swedish National Championships were hosted by us in Issha Kyudo Kai, and as the home team we did pretty well.
In the individual event the club carried home both the gold and silver medals through Knut Högvall and Ingemar Karlsson, respectively. This made Knut the first person to win the national championship title three times, and also the first person to manage defending his title from the previous year.
In the team event, Knut and Ingemar together with Jörgen Falk got the bronze medal.
In the total score for the Swedish Cup 2018, the gold medal was also won by Knut Högvall.
Congratulations to all involved!
(In an unusual turn of events, to say the least, representatives from the Swedish national sports organisation turned up to conduct an unannounced doping test. Four people were chosen to give samples. We're hoping nothing untoward will turn up in the results. ;) )
If you signed the list at our demonstration in the Botanical Gardens during the Kulturnatten event and still haven't received a mail from us, it is because your email address was illegible. Don't worry—just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you information about the beginners' course.
Congratulations to Fredrik Karlström and Anna Darlene van der Heiden, who both passed the examination for 2 kyu today with flying colours!
