Kendo, "the way of the sword", is the art of Japanese fencing. The goal of modern Kendo is to foster self-confidence, build strong spirit and character, respect for oneself and for others, as well as increase one's physical fitness. This is all accomplished through the discipline and etiquette of training in the martial arts.
The Kingston Kendo Club is the first Canadian Kendo Federation sponsored Kendo club to open in Kingston, and is open to all members of the community.
Men and women throughout the world practice Kendo together at all levels of skill and we hope to continue this by attracting members from all different age groups and backgrounds.

Summer Classes End
The school will be undergoing the annual maintenance of the gym floors, so classes will be cancelled until September. However, during this time we often have "Practice in the Park" instead, at our usual class times. I will e-mail everyone, confirming the class usually the day before and weather permitting will will have practice on the waterfront park beside Murney Tower.
