The Jakarta Kendo Association is a non-profit organization. All our sensei and committee members generously contribute their own time to make the magic happen. However, we do have expenses (rental of facilities, for example) and regrettably we must collect a small contribution from each of our members. Really, it is very small. Please also note that all fees are non-refundable, but do not worry, it is going to a great organization.

  • Membership fee: Upon joining JKA, new members currently pay a fee of Rp 300,000. This is due prior to taking full-time training and should be paid no later than by the second week of practice.
  • Annual Fee: All members are currently required to pay an annual fee of Rp 1,800,000. This can be paid in full OR monthly @ Rp 150,000 per month.

Please note that our fees may change from time to time and those changes will be made here.
