With all of the hot days this summer, to add insult to injury a typhoon hit Tokyo during the tournament. We kept a close watch on the typhoon as it approached and made the decision the day before to adjust the tournament schedule so that our members from overseas and other regions of Japan could still participate. Thankfully there were no injuries, and all tournament events from the youth (6 to 10 year olds) competition to the 7th dans were able to do their best. I hope everyone made it home safely! Thank you all for your hard work.
