She remained some astonishment episodes.さて、永子先生にはすごい伝説が残ってまして

She took part in university student’s Keiko when she was second grade junior high school student.

During this keiko, she dashed a university student ( man) and knocked down him.

This university student suffered concussion.

It’s amazing!!

And, there was no women’s department at that time?( I’m not sure)

She became men’s team member and won some men’s players!


It’s very cool!

After graduating university student,

she got married with Kawazo sensei who is a famous Jyodan player.

But, Kawazoe sensei passed away because of accident in China.

(It’s too famous story in kendo )

After that, she had been continuing to teach Kendo in Kochi kogei junior/high school since 2008.

There are not only some strict and hard standard for screening but also conservative wall because she is a woman.
