"Kendo and Iaido Exist together and relate to
each other like Yin and Yang."

2004 AUSKF Iaido Summer Camp
Report by Takeshi Yamaguchi sensei
AUSKF laido Committee Chairman Takeshi Yamaguchi reported that the
2004 AUSKF Iaido Summer Camp was successfully hosted by the SWUSKIF
on June 10-13, 2004, at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado..
The All Japan Kendo Federation ["AJKF"] sent two guest iaido
instructors: Sadanori Ueno, Iaido 8 Dan Hanshi and Kiyofusa Takeda,
Iaido 8 Dan Hanshi, to assist in conducting the 2004 AUSKF Iaido Summer
Due to a financial deficit which resulted after all income and expenditures
were accounted for the 2004 AUSKF Iaido Summer Camp; the AUSKF board
of directors requested that beginning in 2005, the AUSKF Iaido Committee
is to submit a written budget proposal for the 2005 AUSKF Iaido Summer
Camp for review and approval at the Spring, 2005 AUSKF Board of Directors
In addition, beginning with the 2005 AUSKF Iaido Summer Camp, it was
requested that all seminar fees are to be made payable to the AUSKF,
rather than to the hosting regional member federation, as this will
provide the necessary financial records to assist the AUSKF Treasurer
in reconciling the budgeted line items, to facilitate payment of expenditures
when needed, etc.
Thanks to TK Gwin and the Yamakage Dojo for hosting the 2004 AUSKF Iaido Summer Camp.
