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. jb

Hello AKC. We are all really excited to have Choi Sensei visit. Expect a weekend full of fun and sore muscles. We are really fortunate to have such awesome sensei to learn from.  Seminar starts Sunday, October 29, 9:30 am at GLC.  We will be meeting for dinner following practice at Wacky Wings East – black tie optional. – jb

George Leach Centre

We are happy to announce AKC is moving to the George Leach Centre fall 2017.  Keep an eye on the GLC Programs page for details on registering.  This is an exciting move for us as it provides easier access for student athletes to join Kendo.  We are excited to develop our club and further participate in Canadian Kendo Federation events. The YMCA was good to us and we are grateful for our time there, but with change comes new opportunities. We look forward to seeing you in the fall. -jb
