Boston Kendo and Boston Fencing Club. I think the fencing club is in Watertown or Waltham.

Dude, I think proper, real-deal kenjutsu is pretty hard to find here in the US. I'd ask over at e-budo.com forums or the folks who run the koryu.com web site.

Not kenjutsu perse, but they do have a kenjutsu component = Shindo Muso Ryu Jo. The Jo group based in NYC has a senior student who trains in Boston, perhaps check him out as well? I used to train with this group and I remember this Boston person as being very good, dedicated and with a lot of training under his belt: http://www.kobujodokai-usa.org/

OR, just go train Kendo, man, that looks a heckuva lot more fun! If I wasn't doing judo/grappling I'd do kendo: http://www.kendo-usa.org/statedojolist.htm#MA
