Noma Dojo was established in 1925 by Noma Seiji, the first president of the Kodansha publishing company.
The last practice took place at the old Noma dojo on October 22nd, 2007, and a new dojo was opened on October 23rd, 2007. Presently, in the spirit of Noma Seiji, the tradition of morning practice continues to take place in an effort to promote Kendo. Noma Dojo is a private dojo, but is open to the public.
