Belgian National Day

Last Friday 21/07, our Butokukan members had a beautiful demonstration in the context of the Belgian National Day festival organized in “Parc de Bruxelles” πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ

This year, we had many team members including kendokas, iaidokas, from Brussels, Liege and other cities participated in the eventπŸ”₯ Everyone performed their very beautiful kendo and iaido with full energy and spirit.

After the performances, we had some trial sessions for spectators, and it was a huge success 🀩 We had people at all ages and genders who came and tried practicing with us. It was a really lovely moment.

Many thanks to all the participants who came to spend a great day and supported the activities πŸ™πŸ₯°
