HOW DO I START?
We ask that all beginners visit the CSJCC any Tuesday or Thursday to watch one practice before beginning. To get an idea of the martial art, please look below, at our Practice and section. Upon deciding to practice, you are invited to a first practice no charge.
What you need to know before practicing:
You must pay the dues to the CSJCC at the beginning of every month.
This Dojo is non-profit, meaning fees go directly to the community center. None of our instructors are paid to teach kendo . We do, accept donations that support the website, new equipment for the dojo, traveling fees and events held by Shin Sou Fu Kan.
How Does Ranking Work?
Kendo practitioners do not wear any rank identifications. Ranks are based on a system from the Japanese chess game "Go."
There are a total of 14 ranks in kendo; 6"kyu"ranks (lower level) and 8 "dan"ranks (higher level).
All ranks are attained through nationally sanctioned examinations conducted by a panel of instructors appointed by the AUSKF (All United States Kendo Federation),
We have a limited 5 spot, open enrollment new-comers to kendo. The following months, are available for sign-up:
"Please note, this only apply's for people with no prior kendo experience. Kenshi, with formal training can start anytime."
