Harajuku, Part 3: Kendo woman

Kendo woman


This is Christine, an Assistant Language Teacher from the U.S. living in Tochigi prefefcture. It's one of the "country" prefectures, about an hour and half train ride away from the city.

Christine comes in to Harajuku most Sundays to put on her own show in the park. She's been practicing Kendo--the Japanese form of fencing--for a couple of years now. She thought it would add a bit of a different flavour to the Harajuku scene, so she decided to come down and join the show.

I think she looks like a very nice gal!! She'd be good to have around you, too, as protection if need be.

she is centred and focused and her eyes are soft and relaxed, the girl sitting is a nice contrast to it, very lovely shot

She has no real kendo experience. She's in sankyo, improperly. This is one of the first things you learn. Why would you post this? It's embarrassing.

@anon - don't have to be like that, we need more women in the sport, and she looks perfectly fine to me!
