At Bamboo Maru, our philosophy is rooted in the pioneering spirit of experimentation. We envision a global community where kendo practitioners, organizations, partners, and friends come together, not just to connect, but to create a self-sustaining ecosystem enriched by these very connections. Our aim is to build a sustainable and affordable platform that stands as a beacon of safety, inclusivity, and care. By fostering an environment where every member feels valued and supported, we strive to ensure that the essence of kendo — respect, honor, and discipline — is mirrored in every aspect of our community. In this endeavor, we are not just cultivating a network; we are nurturing a family that grows stronger and more vibrant with each new connection.


As Bamboo Maru continues to grow, we invite each one of you to be an active part of our journey. Your support is crucial in shaping our community and spreading the spirit of kendo far and wide. While we do not seek financial donations at this stage, your contributions in other forms are invaluable to us.
