About Tokyo Kyumeikan Kendo Dojo

Tokyo Kyumeikan Dojo was founded in 1957 by Kubo Kahei-sensei, the father of Kubo Akira-sensei, the present director. It adheres to traditional practices and is the International Headquarters of the Tokyo Metropolitan Kendo Dojo Federation.
There are several dojos around the world originally organized by Kubo-sensei and his students, some of which bear the same name, and alumni of Kyumeikan number some 3000 people in 50 countries. We receive visitors all year round from old friends as well as newcomers. Some stay a few days, some a few months, some stay years. The beginner is given plenty of attention, and although those who don't know Japanese are at a certain disadvantage when it comes to verbal explanations, nearly all the foreigners speak good English and are able to be of help.
Physical strength counts for little in kendo. What is required of course is willingness, patience and acceptance. Progress may be slow or quick, but no one will judge you or make fun of you if you are slow to learn, and the atmosphere in general is very supportive. There is socializing after practice, and occasionally an outing, such as the climbing of Mt. Fuji every summer. Foreign students are also regularly sent to other dojos for visits, from one practice, to a week or so. We have begun holding monthly dinners for our foreign members, and are thinking of later on inviting a guest to give an occasional talk on various aspects of budo.
