"Do not focus on winning. Just do beautiful kendo." - Koji Igarashi Sensei, 5th dan

Kendo (剣道, kendō), meaning "Way of The Sword", is a modern Japanese sport/martial art, which descended from swordsmanship (kenjutsu) and uses bamboo swords (shinai) and protective armour (bōgu).




About Us


We are a Kendo club based in Metro Manila (Philippines) under the tutelage of Koji Igarashi Sensei. His style of teaching kendo focuses heavily on Kihon (basics). He emphasizes on the importance of proper form and strong spirit rather than merely winning matches. To him, a good offense leads to good defense -- moving forward and attacking is better than evading and blocking attacks.

We are composed of people from different walks of life that are drawn together towards a passion in kendo. We have members from 3 to 60+ yrs old (can't disclose the real age). Anyone can join in the fun!

The IGA Kendo Club is a proud member of the United Kendo Federation of the Philippines.
