Staunton Kendo, Iaido, & Jodo (2018- present) is the continuation of the old Waynesboro YMCA Kendo Club (1986-2005) and the defunct James Madison University Kendo group (2007-2011).
Our logo was designed by Abigail Portnoy, 3rd dan kendo IKBF. It is a tsuba (guard) with a kendo megane (facemask) in the center. Kendo is in the middle as it represents our primary art with Iaido and Jodo on each side representing the secondary arts we teach.
