Southern California Kendo Organization (SCKO)

Welcome to the Southern California Kendo Organization (SCKO) Official Website!

We are one of the largest non-profit Kendo Organizations in the USA, with 12 Dojos (Clubs) across California. Our members range from 5 to 86 years of age (as of 2017).

SCKO instructors are highly qualified instructors, many of them competing at the national and international levels.

We understand everyone has different goals in Kendo. Here are some examples of what our members are seeking in their daily Kendo training:

Learn Kendo in depth

Compete at a national or international level

Keep themselves healthy and fit

Teach their children to learn respect to others and self-confidence

Make new friends

Learn about Japanese culture

And much more.

Come and try Kendo at one of our Southern California Kendo Organization Dojos.
