OTHER KENDOJO IN HAWAII

Every kendo group expresses their fundamental values in different ways. If you are considering starting kendo training, it's a good idea to visit as many dojo as possible to meet the students and teachers, watch their practice, and so on. Please take your time and watch as many practices as possible. Even if you are unfamiliar with the details or significance of the practice routines, you'll still be able to see what each dojo is like in terms of relationships and feeling. This will make it easier to choose the dojo that is a good match for you.

Please note that in addition to the HKF dojos and Reiun Kenkai Dojo (independent) listed below, there may be other dojos that I don't know about. Please ask around. Thank you!  ~ jks, 02-2015.
