Kent Kendo Club
Founded in 2001, Kent Kendo Club was formed from
Renton Kendo Club. Since then, we have been offering
kendo class through the parks and recreation department,
teaching the traditional Japanese martial art at the Kent Commons.
Kent Kendo Club is part of the Pacific Northwest Kendo Federation (PNKF) and the All United States Kendo Federation (AUSKF).
Our instructors have over 30+ years in teaching experience.
