Ojika NI has been registered with the British Kendo Association and has been hosting Kendo training in Belfast, Northern Ireland since February 2012.
The Club was setup by our Dojo Leader John Kelso (3rd Dan Kendo) in order to provide opportunities for those who wished to be able to practice Kendo in his home country and were previously unable to.
Since then our club has gone from strength to strength with plenty of full time members training regularly. Many of them with Dan levels or ranks.
We are also one of the few Kendo Dojo (Clubs) in the UK who has successfully introduced Children’s Kendo as a main stay of it’s weekly training programme.
2018 has seen the introduction of both Seitei Iaido and Jodo into the training schedule for the first time .
