Kendo at the Rivonia Kendo Club (RKC) - JOIN US!

Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Rivonia Kendo Club (RKC) is a professional martial arts institution, offering the Japanese Martial Arts of Kendo, Iaido & Jodo.

The benefits of doing these martial arts include: Increases fitness; Improves mental focus; and Inspires self-development.

The RKC has adopted the Kendo proverb of "Kō Ken Chi Ai" (交剣知愛) , “the desire to achieve mutual understanding and betterment of humanity through sword training”, to help guide its members on their lifelong pursuit of Kendo, Iaido and Jodo.

To reflect the aspirations of its founders, the RKC set forth three major objectives to be accomplished, namely to:

1) ...FOCUS on helping ALL their members develop good Kendo, Iaido, and/or Jodo.

​2) ...Whilst still having FUN during their time of training and socializing together...

3) ...Resulting in lifelong relationships that make them feel a part of the RKC-FAMILY.

These have become known as our "FOUNDATION PRINCPLES".

Please visit our website for more information on Kendo, Iaido and/or Jodo, or just more about our dojo in general!
