Our kendo club was founded in the fall of 2012 to organize and promote the learning and practice of kendo at Langara College. Kendo has been established in Canada for many years, and our club’s mission is to bring together that experience and provide a venue for new members, both experienced and beginners, to practice and socialize.

Zeal joined the club when it started in the Fall of 2012. As his name suggests, he’s passionate towards anything he participates in and always finds a way to make things perfect. It is one of his goals to see the LKC as a standalone club and for the members to be proud to be part of it. Zeal believes “do it best or don’t do it at all.”
