On Saturday, December 12th, Iwakabe, Hideki Sensei held his annual, End of Year Taikai seminar and testing event. Students from four regional Iaido schools attended the event.
Not only did the Castle Rock students pass their tests for rank, but the Castle Rock students performed very well during the seminar's Iaido form competition.
The competition had two levels: 1) a black belt level and 2) an under black belt level. Students from Castle Rock took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the under black belt competition.
Congratulations Peter, Anders, and Sean!

Iaido Student Testimonial
"Thank you for your passion, vision and resolve in the creation of the Iaido program... You have enabled me to pursue a long-held dream of studying Iaido... It is my hope that Iaido will assist me in some modest personal refinement. Your aesthetic awareness and appreciation for excellence has created a powerful environment of which you should be very proud."
- Peter in Castle Rock, Colorado
