Stockholm Kendo Open 2024

Swedens longest running Kendo competition!

Individual shiai

The individual classes are separated by grade, but… the medalists of each open class move up into the next. So this is a great opportunity to take on everyone.

Team Shiai

The 3-man team shiai of SKO is a Kachinuki (勝ち抜き戦) – the winner stays on. If you want to show the world what you are made of, this is the time.

Incomplete teams will be matched with team-less fighters on site.
