About Us

We are a sister dojo of Gedatsu USA Kendo Dojo (Los Angeles), under the Southern California Kendo Federation (SCKF) and All United States Kendo Federation (AUSKF).

As an open dojo in the San Diego region, we welcome participation of kendo practitioners from any All US Kendo Federation (AUSKF) affiliated dojos. Our philosophy is to be inclusive of all members of the both the kendo as well as the general community.

We also offer a youth oriented kendo instructional program in conjunction with our all-ages open practice.

Our organization is a social and not-for-profit sports club, and all instructors and assistants are volunteer members without pay.

It is our goal to bring together kendo practitioners from various dojos in the region for a chance to play with and learn from one another regularly. Regardless of whether you are a member of an existing dojo under SCKF or SCKO, or if you are not currently affiliated, you are welcome to join us for practice.
