Jakarta Kendo Association

If you can react the same way to winning and losing, that is a big accomplishment; That quality is important because it stays with you the rest of your life.

Welcome to JKA

JKA is a non-profit community organization promoting the martial art of Japanese kendo in Jakarta. Founded in the mid-1990's by kendo enthusiasts from Japan and Jakarta, JKA was officially established as an organization in 2006.

The Jakarta Kendo Association is the largest and oldest kendo club in Indonesia. With the help of dedicated volunteers who take their time to organize and teach our members, JKA has grown from a few dedicated members to a community of kendo enthusiasts wanting to learn this satisfyingly difficult martial art.

JKA is part of a network of established clubs in Bandung, Surabaya, Malang, Yogyakarta, and Medan. These clubs are all part of The Indonesian Kendo Association and members of The IKF/FIK.
