Sponsor or Support the CKF
Your financial support of the CKF goes directly to fund programs including the Canadian National Kendo Championships, Team Canada, and local events that foster the growth of Kendo, Iaido, and Jodo. We thank you for any support or contribution to the CKF.
The Canadian Kendo Federation is a registered not-for-profit organization and has been a National Amateur Athletic Association for over 25 years. The CKF oversees the three disciplines of Kendo, Iaido, and Jodo and endeavours to nurture the growth of these amateur martial arts across Canada. Kendo is practiced by young and old students together, defining a community that crosses generations and cultures.
Today, more than ever, we recognize a place and a need for the martial spirit — to be calm in the face of stress; and to have the physical and mental strength to do good for our communities. Whether it’s confronting business challenges in the boardroom or competing with other elite athletes at the World Kendo Championships, instructors and practitioners actively promote these values inherent in the human spirit.
When you support the CKF, you are helping to bring the teaching of martial arts and cultural pride, to our diverse members across Canada. Every dollar you donate goes toward developing our instructors, athletes, and the next generation of leaders. All donations to the CKF are tax deductible for the year the donation is made, and a tax deductible receipt will be provided to all donors.
Contact the Canadian Kendo Federation for sponsorship opportunities.
