Asean Kendo Tournament 2013 - Day 2

mood: random
song: sakura chiru (gackt)

Today is the official day of the 10th Asean Kendo Tournament!
woke up at 5.30am to get ready with all the equipment needed for the day. Got to the hall at around 6.15am and it seems I was not the earliest. lol

the country plaques
 all of the kendokas arrived at around 7 plus for shinai checking. Tonnes of shinais to be checked before being stamped which enable the contestant to used them for shiai later.

The opening ceremony starts at around 9am.

It started with a Kata demonstration by MKA
The men individual event started at 10am 

 My very first time being able to watch Nito-ryu in a match . :D

meanwhile, our PKC stalls are selling various kendo merchandises outside the hall.

It followed by women team championship later on. The entire event ends at 4pm for the day.
Was really exhausted and went early to bed to prepare for next day's event.
