 Beginners are encouraged to join practice sessions from 7:30 to 8:30 each Wednesday and Friday (show up by 7:15PM to get ready).  Any new members with prior experience or rank can join in at either 7:30 or 8:30.  Need more information?  Just show up at the dojo, contact one of our instructors or call Deputy Jeff Domingo at 626-934-3079.  Cost is $15/month for one person, plus another $5/month for each additional family member.  There is also an annual fee to be paid to the AUSKF and SCKF.  The dojo provides you everything you need to start- shinai & bokken.  All you need are loose fitting clothes, bare feet, and a great attitude!


We have to register you with the SCKF and AUSKF, our parent kendo organizations.  ISKD also charges monthly dues that help to offset our operating costs. 

**Note that anyone under 18 and living in the area, as of now, per the Industry Sheriffs YAL, pays no dues- practice is free!  You will also never has to worry about buying a shinai or bokken- the dojo provides!  Youth only pay for the annual dues to the right ($39).

**ISKD, with the help of the Industry Sheriffs YAL, also provides bogu for those kenshi who can't quite afford a set on their own.  Please speak with a sensei for details.
