The Sei Tou Ken Yu Kai Kendo Club was formed in 1988 by Alex Bennett, following his Rotary exchange to Chiba, Japan. While there, he attended a Japanese High School at which time he began kendo and reached the grade of 1st Dan. Upon his return to Christchurch, Alex made the decision to start one of New Zealand’s first Kendo clubs. With the increasing interest amongst the members, Alex went back and forth to Japan in order to teach what he had learned to his students. Alex currently holds the grade of 6th Dan. Now his younger brother Blake takes trainings and holds the rank of 4th Dan.
