As a pilot episode of this campaign, let’s delve into the memories of Kristopher “Kutch” Inting, IGA Kendo Club’s Quezon City Dojo Manager and concurrent President of the United Kendo Federation of the Philippines.
Kutch, 4-dan, has clocked 19 years in Philippine Kendo. Along with Igarashi-sensei, they established a dojo in Quezon City in February 2010. Currently an office manager of a design and build firm as well as a part time PE instructor at a university, Kutch was inspired into taking up swordsmanship by movies like Star Wars, the Princess Bride, the Highlander, and Seven Samurai. He initially tried fencing and arnis but it was Kendo that eventually got him hooked.
It’s difficult to compress more than a decade of memories but let’s see what made it to Kutch’s top 10.
