About Us

The Club was founded in 1972 by the late Lim Kwa Chwee sensei and from its humble beginnings the Club has progressed much over the past 40 plus years.

Accorded a National Sports Association status by the National Sports Council of Singapore since its inception, SKC receives much support from the Sports Council as well as the Japanese Association and the Japanese School. As a member of the International Kendo Federation, SKC conducts training sessions and regular grading for its club members as well as members from clubs affiliated to SKC in Nanyang Polytechnic, the National University of Singapore and Singapore Management University of Singapore.

Apart from the annual East-West Competition, Lim Kwa Chwee Memorial Tournament, National Championship and the Interclub Tournament (replacing the Singapore Youth Tournament), the Club has from time to time hosted regional events such as the ASEAN Kendo Tournament (last held in Singapore in October 2010). Outwardly, SKC also participates in the World Kendo Championships held every three years and visits other clubs in the region given the opportunity.

Today, the Club continues to grow with members of various nationalities practising the Way of the Sword together under one roof.


Singapore Kendo Club is under the stewardship of its executive committee, elected annually by the club's adult local members.

In the year 2016/2017, the committee is led by:

• Mr Eugene Chow, President
• Ms Daphne Wong, Vice President
• Ms Joyce Chia, Hon. Secretary
• Mr Gabriel Tong, Treasurer

and assisted by co-opted members Ms Teo Ching Hui and Ms Tong Yuyan.

The club would like to express its appreciation to everyone who on top of their work commitments take charge of its administration and organization.

Every member, regardless of skill level, has a role to play in the success of the club. Even if it is simply to attend each and every training session with discipline and dedication.
