About Us

Kenzan members

Kenzan Dojo, was born as a no-profit association, at Gallarate in 1987. The founder members practiced Kendo and Kyudo (Japanese art of archery).

The first trainings were held in a dojo from where one could see a beautiful sight of Mount Rosa (the second highest mountain of the Alps); from there the idea to unite to spirit of the sword, "Ken", and that of the mountain, "Zan".

From a group of brave volunteers, Kenzan Club evolved in a constant point of reference to Italian practitioners, thanks also to the collaboration of prestigious Sensei of several Japanese universities.

The Mon, or symbol, which identifies Kenzan, is first and foremost a tribute to the founders of the Club.

It represents a tsuba (hilt of the katana), top view, with an arrowhead inside, in memory of the founding disciplines of Kenzan.
It is worn on the left sleeve of Keiko-Gi.
