At the start of the year 2010, Igarashi Koji-sensei started training a small group of interested individuals and University of the Philippines students in the way of the sword. This group has come to be known as “IGA-Ken”. The club has now grown into a dynamic organization gathering together people from all walks of life, students and professionals alike.
IGA-Ken is now composed of two dojo: the Arena Fitness Dojo, based in Quezon City, and the Dasmarinas Village Dojo, based in Makati City. They also have an affiliate club in the form of the University of the Philippines Kendo Club (UP Kendo Club), based in UP Diliman, Quezon City. For more information about the UP Kendo Club, please visit their Facebook Page.
People who want to make inquiries about joining the club can either contact us via the email listed below or through the guest book section of this site. Also we have put up a FAQ page that should answer all common questions about joining the club.
