An IGA Kendo Club based in Makati City

While based in the Philippines, Sensei Koji Igarashi saw the chance to keep the centuries-old martial art of Kendo alive. Initially, he taught exclusively to children, calling this group “Hera-Ken”, because sessions were held at Herald Suites Makati. Since then, Igarashi Sensei formed another club based in Quezon City under the official name “IGA Kendo Club”.

The Hera-Ken informal Saturday sessions has since grown and become organized into regular classes, composed of people of all
ages. In June 2012, the venue for Hera-Ken was moved to Dasmarinas Village Basketball court along Campanilla Street, and the group’s name was changed to “IGA Kendo Club Dasmarinas”.
