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.
