The Rembuden Kendo Taikai is New Zealand's annual Kendo competition open to all-comers.

Organised and hosted by Wellington's Rembuden Kendo Club, the Taikai in 2019 will be the 20th consecutive running of the Taikai since inception.  It is the longest running shiai in New Zealand Kendo.

The Taikai attracts competitors from all over New Zealand and always features fiercely contested shiai in good spirit.

The Rembuden Kendo Club is grateful for the ongoing support for the Taikai from competitors and shimpan alike that continue to make it a success and contribute to the ongoing development of Kendo in New Zealand.

The Rembuden Kendo Club is also grateful for the support of Akira Nakamura who has a proud history as a competitor while also contributing as a shimpan.  In 2019 Akira kindly donated medals for the Taikai.
