On 1st Dec 2012, Phuket Thailand – PLAJA started to dispatch the volunteer instructor to Phuket Kendo Club.
Phuket Kendo Club has been in 13 years since it was established and there is the only one Kendo Club in Phuket. However the club has a great history itself, there is only three students right now.
The environment of playing Kendo is not good enough due to the lack of support. These equipments such as bamboo swords and uniforms damaged, they were playing the sports activities on the ground put vinyl sheet on, obviously without air- conditioning.
Therefore, there was one teacher who has a kendo first stage, leads to the students.
PLAJA got approval from Phuket Sports Association to participate the volunteer activities for Phuket Kendo Club.
As one of the welfare activities from PLAJA, we manage the prizes for the monthly tournament to be carried out every month.
To cheer the children to inherit the intangible traditional culture of Japan, PLAJA dispatchs the volunteer instructor who has a Kendo black belt and staying long term in Phuket, to Phuket Kendo Club.
Also, We started clean-up activities of the park at Sapanhin district with club members.
Through the welfare activities we would contribute for club member acquisition, would raise the donation such second hand equipments from Japanese Kendo training halls.
We will continue to support the Phuket kendo club in the future.
