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.


Updated Bogu Recommendations

It has been some time since I wrote the bogu recommendations. Here are my current recommendations for those members considering purchase.

Fall Term 2016

The first class of the fall term will be Wednesday, September 14. We will be accepting new beginners only in September. This year, beginners will receive a 2 week trial membership at the Y, so they can try out kendo and any other features of the Y.
