Welcome to the British Kendo Association

The British Kendo Association (BKA) is the official governing body for Kendo, Iaido and Jodo in the UK. The BKA was founded in 1964 as a non-profit making organisation to foster and develop the practice and spirit of Kendo, Iaido, and Jodo along traditional lines. For more information on the BKA, please read the ‘About us‘ section.

If you are interested in beginning Kendo, Iaido or Jodo please see the ‘Getting Started‘ section for more information and then look in Clubs for somewhere to practice near you.
