Welcome to the twelfth year of the London Cup goodwill kendo tournament. This event, spread over two days, has individual men’s and women’s shiai, plus an open five man tournament. There is an evening free jigeiko on the Friday night also. Based in the heart of Central London, close to famous landmarks and excellent transport links, the tournament aims to bring an exciting and dynamic event to the Capital.
The London Cup is a goodwill tournament open to all EKF/IKF members that strives to bring teams from different nations together to enjoy kendo, friendship, and exchange. Whether you are a high level competitor seeking a new challenge, or a beginner looking for a new experience and a good weekend of kendo, you are warmly welcome.
As a goodwill event the London Cup looks to develop competitor’s skills both through active competition and also refereeing. To keep with this spirit of active participation at all levels, we would like to invite any participants third dan and higher to shinpan.
The London Cup is a non for profit event, run by volunteers purely to promote kendo in the UK. All funds from registration go towards the vital running costs.
The London Cup would like to thank KendoStar for their kind support as an Offical Sponsor for the event.
