Washinkan Kendo


COVID-19 Update, December 5th, 2020.

As COVID-19 continues to affect us on a global scale, we have taken steps that locally affects all Washinkan in person kendo training. Washinkan, along with the community centers we work with, suspended all in-person training in March. Members have received directions on how to join virtual sessions being held Wednesdays and Sundays. Guests are welcome to reach out to Washinkan leaders at info@washinkan.org to inquire about virtual training.

New Member training has been suspended. If a decision is made to begin virtual beginner sessions an update will be placed here.

We have hopes to begin in-person training again in the Spring of 2021, but the final decision to start is dependent on many factors.

Any questions or concerns about Washinkan should be directed to info@washinkan.org.
