HELLO

FRIENDS!

Welcome to the

Georgia Kendo Association Website!

 

GKA is a dojo where you can learn and deepen Kendo, a traditional Japanese martial art, which descended from samurai swordsmanship (kenjutsu) and uses bamboo swords (shinai) and protective gears (bogu) in Atlanta Georgia since 1977.
