Anti-Doping Activities in Kendo

Anti-Doping measures in sports throughout the world have been mounting since the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was established in 1999 and the “International Convention against Doping in Sport” was adopted at the UNESCO General Conference in October 2005. To keep pace with anti-doping procedures, the International Kendo Federation (FIK) implemented the “FIK Anti-Doping Rules” in December 2006.
