The Harvard Invitational Shoryuhai Intercollegiate Kendo Tournament, or Shoryuhai (昇龍杯) for short, is the largest intercollegiate kendo tournament in North America. Currently in its 23rd year, the Shoryuhai is hosted annually by the Harvard Radcliffe Kendo Club each spring. Teams come from all over North America and Europe, including teams from Canada and Mexico and Germany. The tournament is held in the Harvard University Malkin Athletic Center (MAC) basketball court. The fundamental purpose of the Shoryuhai is to promote kendo at the collegiate level.
