Kendô and the CNKDR's disciplines

The CNKDR was created in 1972 within the FFJDA (French Judo and Associated Disciplines Federation). The CNKDR tends to promote and develop five disciplines as competitive sports but also as traditional martial arts:

  • kendô, Japanese fencing
  • iaidô, an art focused on drawing and cutting smoothly with your sword
  • chanbara, free fencing with different weapons
  • jôdô, a fighting style using a staff
  • naginata, an art requiring a pole weapon

These disciplines help developing the practitioner both physically and mentally, no matter if you are young or old, if you’re a man or a woman. Today, you can practice these sports everywhere in France in more than 450 clubs.



The CNKDR invites you to discover its disciplines with several demonstrations and workshops. All are welcome at the Budô area to participate in introductory sessions to kendô and other disciplines led by the members of the comity.
