A new year is upon us, we welcome new students to come and try out Kendo, Mondays at 8:15pm in the GLC mutli-purpose room. New lower prices are in place as well, please check with the front desk. This year will include a visit from Choi Sensei, alone with another sensei and team Canada prospects. Grading in early November in Toronto, along with JCCC tournament. We are hoping to run some in club fun tournaments in the winter. Great year planned, come check us out.


It’s hard to believe that summer is over, but that means it’s the start of a new Kendo season! This year we’re going to shake things up a bit, as we have restructured our classes to better meet the needs of our growing club to ensure success at all levels. By having a beginners night and an advanced night we are hoping to allow for more focus on basics on Mondays to ensure members are able to advance into bogu as soon as possible. Meanwhile having an advanced night on Wednesdays to ensure bogu members are ready to grade in Toronto in November and June.  Newbies don’t fret, we’ll have you striking on us first day, and if all goes well, grading in June.

Start Date: September 10th.

Beginners Mondays 8:15 pm – 9:45 pm

  • $90 for GLC members or $115 for non-GLC members.

Advanced Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:15 pm – 9.45 pm

  • $125 for GLC members or $150 for non-GLC members.

Location: George Leach Centre, Group Fitness Studio

Looking forward to meeting all the new kendokas.
