Kids' Classes, Groups, Teams & Tutors

Kendo, the "way of the sword", is a traditional martial art. Our dojo welcomes children ages 7+, as well as teens and adults. Anyone is welcome to watch a practice anytime. We practice at Live Oak Community Center (1301 Shattuck Ave) in Berkeley on Mondays from 5:45 - 7:15 pm, and at Francis Albrier Community Center (2800 Park St) on Thursdays from 7 - 8:30 pm. We are members of the Northern California Kendo Federation (NCKF) and the All-U.S. Kendo Federation (AUSKF). All instructors volunteer their time; fees/dues pay for insurance, rent, etc. You can visit our website at
