( ken • shin • kai )

New York Kenshinkai is located right in the heart of Manhattan. Having celebrated our fifteenth year in 2017, we have many dedicated members who are pursuing both their individual and common goals through the practice of Kendo. We are affiliated with the national All US Kendo Federation and the regional All Eastern US Kendo Federation. If you happen to be in New York, we would be very happy to have you visit us.

Join NY Kenshinkai

In addition to attending and hosting many kendo events throughout the year, we also have many casual events where we further strengthen our bonds outside of practice. One of our long-time traditions is an annual "no kendo" summer camp.

Let's have fun together!
