Kendo in Saint Louis has been around in some form since early 2000's. With a previous club at Missouri kendo club, clubs at WashU and Saint Louis University into our current group. Thanks to the late Dennis Taylor who was one of our founding members we were able to start at St. Ann community Center 2008. Due to our group growing in experience and size we decided to found a non-profit in 2010.
