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.



August 11, 2020

Arai sensei is starting kendo practice for GKA again. HOWEVER, we do understand the danger of Covid still, so this is not a mandate, and please participate at your own risk and leisure. We are recommending that everyone be safe, but Arai sensei is just offering practices for those who wish to participate.

When: Every Saturday from 5PM - 7PM
(beginner class starts at 5, and advance class starts at 6)
