Infection Prevention Guidelines for Iaido Examinations (Special Notes)
All Japan Kendo Federation
The All Japan Kendo Federation (AJKF) published the “Infection Prevention Guidelines for Examinations” (hereafter, “Examination Guidelines”) on June 22, 2020. All iaido examinations will also follow these guidelines. To prevent the spread of infections in iaido, the following items must also be adhered to.
All practitioners should wear a mask that they find comfortable in the venue.
- In the venue always wear a mask that remains in place when making different movements and that covers the nose and mouth.
- Furthermore, during the COVID-19 pandemic, please pay close attention to the risks associated with heatstroke, and pay more attention to your physical condition.
Please note that the Examination Guidelines will be reviewed depending on the status of infections, the prefectures in which they are held, and the policies of the facilities used. Please also check for the latest information.
＊Please note that this guidance relates specifically to Japan. Overseas practitioners should follow the rules in their country.
