San Mateo Kendo Dojo was founded in 1981 in San Mateo, California. It is one of eleven member schools of non profit Northern California Kendo Federation (NCKF). Our Dojo instructors teach on a voluntary basis and also we practice kendo as a part of City of San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department and Foster City Parks and Recreation Department activities. Therefore, San Mateo Dojo charges very reasonable.
We consistently place individuals to Team NCKF for All US Kendo Championship Tournament which is held every three years.
San Mateo Kendo dojo was chosen to perform kendo demonstration at Japan Expo 2014 in Aug. 24 at San Mateo Event Center.
As a member school of NCKF, our dojo members can attend various activities which are organized by NCKF or it's member schools including tournaments such as NCKF Championships, monthly NCKF mass practices (Godo Keiko), two annual NCKF rank testings in May and November, an annual NCKF summer camp, and special NCKF seminars.
See Practice Information for more information about our kendo activities.
