Our annual tournament has been a tradition in the Pacific Northwest for over 50 years. Generations of kendoka have come from all over the world to test their skills against the fiercest competition in North America.

The 55th Annual Steveston Invitational Kendo Tournament will be held at McMath Secondary School on February 11, 2017. The tournament begins at 9:00 a.m. with the parade of participants followed at 10:00 a.m. with the individual and team competitions. This year we anticipate close to 350 competitors from 35 dojos or clubs from throughout North America and Hawaii participating in 12 junior and senior events.

Our tournament is only possible through the generous support of our participants and their dojo/clubs, parents and supporters of the Steveston Kendo Club, and the local community.

The Steveston Kendo Tournament is supported in part by the Richmond Sport Hosting Incentive Grant Program that has partnered with over 200 events since 2010 through its Incentive Grant Program.
