2013 William & Mary Tournament
The 2013 William & Mary tournament and shinsa is concluded. Once again Triangle had a good showing. Llael Cox placed 3rd in the womens division and Teppei Tsurumi placed first in the senior division.
In addition we had 1 person from the Raleigh dojo pass his 4 kyu (Bill Crowell) and 4 women from the UNC dojo pass their 3 kyu ( Carson Kasovic, Taylor Draughn, Angela Jiang, and Lauren Howard). In addition
Teppei Tsurumi passed the jitsugi portion of his 3 dan shinsa but unfortunately did not pass the kata portion. He will re-try the kata portion within a year to pass.
Congratulations to you all.
Triangle Kendo & Iaido
Welcome to the Triangle Kendo & Iaido web site. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the Japanese sword arts of kendo and iaido located in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh, North Carolina.

Practice with Fujiwara sensei
Well once again this year I have to say I was disappointed by the turnout for practice with Fujiwara sensei on Saturday March 30 at UNC. The UNC dojo had a good turnout and UNC regular Llael Cox was there but no other dojo had anyone show up. No one from Duke, no one from Raleigh.
No More Iaido
I am sorry to say that we currently do not have any iaido practices scheduled. We have not been able to have any regularly scheduled iaido for 4 years due to lack of qualified instructor. Our kendo program is going very strong but until we are able to gain an instructor we will have no iaido practices.
