The All Japan Kendo Federation is an organization whose purpose is to cultivate the traditional Japanese culture of kendo, iaido, and jodo. As unique and representative arts of Japan, the All Japan Kendo Federation aims to popularize and promote kendo, iaido, and jodo, and to put into practice the “The Concept of Kendo”:
The concept of kendo is to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana (sword).
This can be achieved by developing in practitioners a healthy mind and body, cultivating a great character, and nurturing talented people and a healthy society, as well as contributing and promoting international understanding.
* The All Japan Kendo Federation was an “general incorporated foundation” (ippan zaidan hojin), but from September 16, 2020 it changed to “public interest incorporated foundation” (koeki zaidan hojin) status.
