SINGAPORE KENDO CLUB
The Club was founded in 1972 by the late Lim Kwa Chwee sensei and from its humble beginnings the Club has progressed much over the past 40 plus years.
Accorded a National Sports Association status by the National Sports Council of Singapore since its inception, SKC receives much support from the Sports Council as well as the Japanese Association and the Japanese School. As a member of the International Kendo Federation, SKC conducts training sessions and regular grading for its club members as well as members from clubs affiliated to SKC in Nanyang Polytechnic, the National University of Singapore and Singapore Management University of Singapore.
Apart from the annual East-West Competition, Lim Kwa Chwee Memorial Tournament, National Championship and the Interclub Tournament (replacing the Singapore Youth Tournament), the Club has from time to time hosted regional events such as the ASEAN Kendo Tournament (last held in Singapore in October 2010). Outwardly, SKC also participates in the World Kendo Championships held every three years and visits other clubs in the region given the opportunity.
Today, the Club continues to grow with members of various nationalities practising the Way of the Sword together under one roof.
