GB Kendo News

Posted On: 1 March 2018

Nine Circles is incredibly proud to announce our official sponsorship of the British Kendo Team!

Over the coming years Nine Circles is supporting the athletes directly and GB Kendo as a whole, with donations of teamwear, equipment and sales of official GB Kendo merchandise. All profits on sales of official Tenugui and GB Kendo sportswear will be donated to the BKA to help fund squad travel and expenses.

We are also privileged to be the official Shinai supplier to the British squad. Team members will be selecting their favourite Shinai models from our extensive range of specialist models and putting them to use at the sharp end of Kendo practice and competition.

By supporting GB Kendo in this way, we want to encourage the growth and improve the visibility of Kendo, give Kendoka starting on their journey an insight into top tier practice and offer an opportunity for our customers to support the GB squad directly by wearing their colours on their sleeve (or head).

Watch this space for news, pictures, squad interviews and more in the coming months.
