Kendo, which is going to be introduced to American citizens for the first time in the Trade Fair this year, is a relative sport with “stillness” and “motion.” And it is expected to be greatly popular because of its active motion. Seattle Kendo Kai decided on a demonstration schedule during the fair, which is going to be held every other day with judo, which is as follows:

Saturday, April 12 at 9:30 p.m.; Sunday, April 13 at 5 p.m.; Monday April 14 at 8 p.m.; Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, April 16, 18 and 19 at 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 20 at 9 p.m.

The participants of the seven demonstrations will include Imanishi (3 dan), Shoji (3 dan), Yasui (3 dan), Ogata (2 dan), Akizuki (1 dan) Mihara (1 dan), Shiga (1 dan), and Shigaki, Muraoka, Awata, Mori, Hayashi and Sudo.
