Going by their parents country of birth here is the wonderful world of the AKC kids keiko... China China Malaysia Thailand/Japan South America(Sorry not sure exactly where) Japan/Australia Taiwan Japan Japan Japan All these kids are new kiwi or born in NZ first generation...it is thru them that many of their parents will learn some important lessons about life here in Aotearoa.....resulting in a great place to live for everyone !

Jay as as Kenshi trainer for the new kids, he is doing a good job for the dojo

That was great KEIKO! Well done everyone!

Wonderful to see these little kendo beansprouts after our team and as a geiko while I was visiting

Well done everyone, see you all next week. Tell your friends, the more the merrier.
