Corona virus


Here follows an important notice to all Amsterdam Kenshi:
We hope this message finds you in the best of health & spirits.
Amsterdam senior kenshi have decided to choose ‘Safety First’ – & suspend training in all Amsterdam dojo’s for the time being.
This is a temporary measure – and we intend to resume regular training once there is more clarity about how to fight the Corona virus.
In the meanwhile please take care – keep in touch with us & each other – and use the upcoming period as an opportunity to practice single form Tenchiken – Meditate daily and keep fit in any way you can.

All good things to you & yours.

The color of obi’s (belts) for kyu kenshi has been changed.

  1. There’s a new kyu rank, instead of 5 kyu’s there are 6 now.
  2. The color sequence of obi’s is now:
  • Minarai kenshi: white
  • 6th, 5th and 4th kyu: green
  • 3rth, 2nd and 1st kyu: brown

So, if you are wearing yellow, orange, green or blue you can change your obi for another color.
