Tozenji Junior Kendo Club started practicing in March, 2009 as an extra practice location for kendokas from various clubs who love kendo and wanted to practice more. The following year, in November 2010, Tozenji Junior Kendo Club became a member of the Canadian Kendo Federation (CKF) and the British Columbia Kendo Federation (BCKF). Since then, Tozenji Junior Kendo Club has been an active member of these organizations.
Our club consists of mostly junior members. We never forget our focus on improving and maintaining our fundamentals throughout the numerous drills and exercises. Our fun, "at home" environment dojo welcomes those who are hard-working and passionate about the martial art.
