After six years of loading/unloading our equipment before and after every single class to transport it between our two different dojo, this coming term the city council have finally granted us training times in the big hall for all our classes! Since we have access to a storage room in the big hall, this means no more carrying equipment in and out of the cars! Less time to set up and break down the dojo every class = more effective time for practice. Here's hoping they'll let us stay for the foreseeable future.

The results from the third instalment of the Swedish Cup on 18 June in Vänge (click the link below). Three of our members (Knut Högvall, Jörgen Falk, and Christine Alveblad) finished in the points and advance in the standings.

The combined standings is still a very open affair, with seven shooters from four dojo still with a mathematical chance at the overall title at the finals in October.

At the Swedish Cup in Vänge on 18 June, Knut Högvall was once again involved in extra rounds for the medals. This time, however, Arne Högberg from Seikyukai won the day, and Knut had to make do with the silver medal. The bronze went to Jan Graaf from Kenshou. Congratulations all around!

It is time to start deciding whether you will be wanting to go to Japan for the dan examinations next year. Since the World Championships will be held concurrently, there will be no European seminar in the summer. So the only possibility for dan examinations during 2018 will be in Japan.

The Club Championships were held during the final class of spring term on Friday 2 June. As usual, Knut and Ingemar had to use extra rounds to separate them. After two extra rounds, Knut emerged victorious, Ingemar got the silver, and behind the two leaders Christine squeezed past the competition and took the bronze medal. A first medal of many? Congratulations to the winners, and to all participants.

After the competition, everybody went out for a bit to eat and general rejoicing.

Congratulations to our new kyu grades - Christine Alveblad, Helin Ciftci, Kajsa Holmberg, and Lyon Lee - who all passed 2 kyu with flying colours at the national kyu examination. It was a sight to behold!

Congratulations are also due Jörgen Falk and Knut Högvall, who took the gold and silver medals, respectively, at the Swedish Cup that was held on the same day. After a shaky start, both Jörgen and Knut scored a kaichu in the second round, and thereby managed to squeeze past the competition.
