Welcome to Bamboo Maru

Uniting Kendo Practitioners Worldwide

Connecting Kendo Enthusiasts Globally

At Bamboo Maru, we believe in the strength of connection. Our platform is dedicated to bringing together kendo practitioners, dojos, and enthusiasts from all corners of the world. We aim to create a vibrant, interactive network where ideas, skills, and experiences are shared freely, fostering a global kendo community that transcends geographical boundaries.

Fostering Community and Knowledge Exchange

The spirit of kendo is not just in the practice but in the community. Bamboo Maru is more than just a network; it’s a family united by a shared passion. Here, we celebrate the rich traditions and evolving practices of kendo. Through forums, events, and collaborative platforms, we strive to disseminate the principles and teachings of kendo, enriching both the seasoned practitioner and the curious beginner.

Supporting Kendo Initiatives

Bamboo Maru is committed to the growth and promotion of kendo. We recognize and support initiatives that aim to spread the knowledge and practice of kendo. From local dojo events to international seminars and workshops, we are here to amplify these efforts, providing a platform for these initiatives to gain visibility and impact.

Bamboo Maru is currently in its pilot stage, a crucial phase where we are actively gauging the interest and engagement from our global kendo communities. This exploratory period is essential for us to understand the needs, preferences, and aspirations of kendo practitioners and enthusiasts worldwide. As we navigate through this pilot phase, we want to emphasize that the final organizational structure of Bamboo Maru has not been finalized. We are in a dynamic state of growth and learning, and based on the feedback and insights we receive during this stage, there may be significant changes and evolutions in our structure and offerings. This flexibility allows us to adapt and tailor Bamboo Maru to best serve the kendo community, ensuring that we remain aligned with our core mission of fostering a connected and supportive global kendo network. We invite our members to be an active part of this journey, contributing their thoughts and ideas to help shape the future of Bamboo Maru.

Bamboo Maru is an early-stage organization with no status, at the moment, testing a proof of concept.
