In the wake of the Little Rock tornadoes hitting the Rodney Parham club location on Friday, March 31st, AKC has moved! (We swear this is not an April Fools joke!)
We have secured a practice location at Esporta Fitness on Chenal. See Location page for address and directions.
We are restructuring membership fees. The total monthly cost for members is now approximately $60, dropping from the previous $75. The full cost break down is listed on Membership Dues. Please review these changes thoroughly.
Our practice hours will remain the same BUT, with the gym membership, we will now have the ability to hold additional practices during the week or even on Saturday.
The main practice room has a spring loaded wooden floor, high ceilings, mirrors, and will be consistently available for us on Friday and Sunday. Beyond that, we can use one of their racquetball courts or basketball court, if the main practice room is not available.
Having the gym membership will also allow us to utilize their amenities – sauna, swimming pool, hot tub, weight room, fitness machines, basketball court, showers (no more stinky second keiko!), locker rooms, etc.
We are deeply saddened at the loss of the dojo location where Arkansas Kendo has practiced since it’s inception in 2003, but we are grateful to have been able to secure such a well suited location so quickly. Thank you to all of the club members who came together to make this happen!
