RIT Kendo is a student run organization that educates its members in the Japanese art of swordsmanship. Founded in 2001, the club is open to all students, faculty, and anyone with an interest in Kendo. RIT Kendo emphasizes that the study of Kendo does not solely train a practitioner on how to use a sword. Strong friendships, discipline, fitness and much more are gained through the study of Kendo!
We hold three weekly practices and attend two to five tournaments a year competing in teams and individuals.
To all RIT kendoka- We will try our best to get our matches on camera, but unfortunately due to things like multiple matches at the same time, dead batteries, or full memory cards, we may not get every beautiful moment- sorry about this! Please watch your matches and learn. がんばろうよ！
