Welcome to the Saskatoon Kendo Club

    The Saskatoon Kendo Club was founded in 1981 by Ken Miyaoka. Miyaoka-sensei has over 50 years experience and holds the rank of nanadan (7th degree). Since the club was founded, dozens of people have attained a rank of 1st degree or higher. The club currently has about 50 members and practices at the YMCA in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Our annual seminar is held every February. For more information, please contact Neil . For a quick overview of kendo, check this site. For more comprehensive information, consult the Japanese Sword Arts FAQ.


Fall uniform, jacket order

We will be putting through an order for beginner's uniforms. The cost is $100, cash or cheque payable to Saskatoon Kendo Club. You must pay in advance. I will be taking orders up to and including Sunday, Nov 6. I will also need your height, so if you don't know it please measure yourself.

I would also like to put in an order for club jackets, so please let me know if you are interested. I don't have a price yet but the last time we did an order it was $85/jacket including your name embroidered on the sleeve.

Registration Closed for Fall Term

We are no longer accepting beginners for the fall term. Our next beginner intake will be in January. Check this space for further details.
