  • School / Groups in Atlanta, GA (USA)

    It is quite possible that i will be moving to Atlanta this fall but I will be in town from September 18th through the 22nd. While I am down there I am going to be looking for a school / group to continue my kendo training. I would like to visit with instructors and if time permits watch a class to get a feel for the group.

    If you could point me in the right direction I would appriciate it.

      i practiced with the folks at the Georgia Kendo Alliance while i was down in atlanta on business last month. very nice folks, good solid instruction and a very nice facility.

      you should give them a call.

        Come on down.

        I just started on May 1 and Kendo has become big part of my life. Since GKA started beginners classes this year there seems to be a huge response. From my perspective there seems to be at least 10 to 15 new folks every 2 months. While only 20% carry on beyond the first classes myself and a few others have been shown some long term dedication.

        Come on down and practice with us. On Saturday's a few of us show up an hour before the beginner's class and stay through the advanced class.

            I might join you guys when I get my bogu and uniform. I need something to keep my Kendo up while I am not at school other than self-instruction.

              I've heard good things about Georgia Kendo Alliance. If I wasn't running my own dojo at university, I'd definetely be practicing with them.

                a mr. Kang I beleive visited our dojo, he was very tall, my sensei paired me up with him because he was the only one my height 6'1-6'2. Man it was harder to keep up with him because I'm so used to underreaching because of outstepping my partner. I went for men-men and he was long gone before my first step.
