Welcome to the Brussels Yaegaki-Kai

The Brussels Yaegaki Kai - Iaido Club Ucclois is an affiliate of the All Belgium Kendo Federation (ABKF), which itself is part of the International Kendo Federation (IKF). Membership in the Brussels Yaegaki Kai dojo is open to anyone interested in learning Iaido and all skill levels are welcome. View our training hours page.

Bōnenkai 2015

A bōnenkai (忘年会) literally “forget the year gathering” is a Japanese drinking party that takes place at the end of the year. This year the Brussels Yaegaki Kai gathered at Japanese restaurant – Senraku – to celebrate a tremendous 2015 year, full of hard keiko and every day dedication of everybody in the dojo. 2015 is not yet finished and the ABKF Winter seminar is ahead but now was a good time to relax and celebrate. The dinner was great with good food and nice drinks (Beer/Shōchū 焼酎/Nihonshu 日本酒) 🙂
