Ken Dorning

For many decades, and throughout our use of the Berwick Masonic hall for our dojo, Ken acted as caretaker of the hall.

As a club, we've really appreciated the efforts of Ken over this time and the care he has taken in his dealings with us.

Geoff Salmon

On 10th November 2018, we heard the sad news of the passing of Geoff Salmon Sensei 7th Dan Kyoshi.

Salmon Sensei was one of the key figures in the establishment of Mumeishi Kendo Club in the UK, and was a good friend of our own senior instructor Gazzaniga Sensei.

We extend our thoughts and best wishes to Salmon Sensei's family and to the UK kendo community. We share in this period of mourning.
