La fête national Belge

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 » 🇧🇪

This year, we had many team members including kendokas, iaidokas, from Brussels, Liege and other cities participated in the event🔥 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 🙏🥰
