Who We Are. クラブの歴史と紹介

 Kendo is a traditional Japanese martial arts, and there is a large population of Kendo lovers in the US.  You can think of it as a "Japanese style fencing" if you'd like, although the two are very different. If you'd like to know more about Kendo, you can look at the All US Kendo Federation website:  or 

Watching the videos that we linked at "What is Kendo?" and "What is KENDO SPIRIT?" on the left is also very useful in understanding what Kendo is all about. 

The philosophy of our club is to learn and execute the correct, beautiful, and strong Kendo.  

Our club was originally founded by Mr. Tetsuo Watanabe sensei (7 Dan) in early 2008, but he had to return to Japan due to personal reasons in November 2008. Therefore the club is currently operated by several instructors.  Our club is NON-PROFIT 501(c) (7), and all of our instructors have other day-time jobs.  We are teaching Kendo as volunteers.  Please respect the time and effort that the officers put into the operation of the club.  Together, let Kendo flourish in Las Vegas and all over the world. 

Our club is affiliated with the All United States Kendo Federation (AUSKF) and Southern California Kendo Federation (SCKF) through a partnership with the PJCI Kendo Dojo in Pasadena, CA.  We are particularly grateful to the support of Yamasaki sensei at PJCI Dojo and Shikai sensei at Chuo Dojo in LA. 

The practice is usually attended by 10-15 children and 5-10 adults.  We are always craving for instructions/seminars by a higher ranking sensei, so please contact us at the email address below if you ever pass by.  We would be delighted to have you at our dojo.  We have a set of bogu and dogi available for visiting sensei.
