| Kogakukan was established on
February 2004. The name, Kogakukan was given to Yabe sensei by his shisho, Hironori
Kogaku carries a meaning that roughly translates to "Infinite Learning" and the final letter, Kan translates to "place".
In unison, it means "A Place for Infinite Learning".
Yabe sensei teaches his students to become a person who can manage any crisis at any situation through his Kendo training.
Now Kogakukan is a member of All United States Kendo Federation (AUSKF) and affiliated through Central California Kendo Federation.
