ABOUT US

manila kendo club

OUR MISSION

To grow and advance Kendo practice in the Philippines.

OUR HISTORY

The Manila Kendo Club (MKC) was started in the late 1970s by Japanese expatriates who wanted to continue practicing kendo during their stay in the Philippines. In the early 1990s, MKC held its weekly practice at the Manila Polo Club with about a dozen Japanese members and one Filipino, where almost half were young children. By 1995, MKC moved to the Makati Sports Club where the club has grown to about 25 members (including 15 Filipinos). MKC formally came into existence when it registered with the Security Exchange Commission on October 3, 1996. Today MKC holds its practice sessions at the Gatorade Hoops Center and Treston International College, with about 80 members in its roster.
