Canadian Kendo Federation
The World Kendo Championships concluded with the team match finals on the fourth day of the event on July 7, 2024. Both the women and the men’s teams fought the last day, having successfully progressed from their pools. Both teams made it to the quarter-finals (top 8). The women had a close match against USA and the men put on a good showing against the eventual champions Japan. In the women’s team division, Juah Paik was awarded the fighting spirit award, which she more than deserved even on the first day with her individual performance. In the men’s division, Kunhee Shawn Kimwas awarded the fighting spirit award after excellent matches on the day. I am proud of the performance Team Canada Kendo put on at the 19th World Kendo Championships in Milan, and hope for continued improvement Hyun-June Choi photo: Kendo Jidai International ...

The first day (July 4, 2024) of the four day World Kendo Championships was the women’s individual division. Team Canada Kendo women really made a statement and the world took notice of Canadian Kendo. It was an absolute honour and joy to be able to present one of our own with a fighting spirit award at the end of the day. And there was more to come in the next events. Thank you Betty Park for giving me the honour of being able to present you with the fighting spirit award in front of the world by not only making it to the quarter finals but showcasing your amazing kendo and spirit - Hyun-June Choi photo: 全日本剣道連盟 All Japan Kendo Federation Flickr ...
