IGA Kendo Club Philippines

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 three dojo: 1) IGA-Ken Arena, based in Quezon City, 2) IGA-Ken Dasma, based in Makati City, and 3) IGA-Ken City Club, also 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.
