Baltimore-Annapolis Kendo is incorporated as a non-profit, non-stock entity. Our instructors are 100% volunteer and are not paid (all members of the club, including instructors, pay monthly dues). We seek to hand down what we have learned to the next generation of kendo and iaido enthusiasts. Kendo and iaido are life-long learning activities. We learn about ourselves and achieve personal growth through the study of these samurai arts.

The founding members of our dojo began practicing together in January 2000. Baltimore-Annapolis Kendo was founded in 2006 when we moved to our current location at the Severna Park Community Center.
