Subject: Its been long time from Katsu

Hello, Marleen and Sam.

Katsu here. Its been long time since I left waikato, sorry for not telling anythig. I have been very busy, I had to work everyday and also need to study for the exams.

Fortunately, I passed the entrance exams!!!!! I will study at Tokyo Univiersity from Octorber. I will continue studying environmental studies.

One of the reason I passed was that I could keep my mind stable trought writing exams and interview. This stable mind is from Kendo I guess.

So thank you thank you very much for everything you did for me.

I guess our club member really enjoyed the summer camp which I watched the pictures. So many kendo people in our dojo, I can feel the good atmospere, tension and enthudism.

I have no time to practice kendo right now, but I will start aga…
