Hands-on Learning - Kendo Beginner's Course

We hold Kendo beginners' courses for adults (aged 18 and over) at various times throughout the year.  During the 6-week course you will learn the basics of Kendo, including etiquette, footwork and striking techniques. By the end of the course you will be ready to train in the traditional Kendo uniform and armour ("bogu") and you will join with the Sydney Kendo Club's regular Wednesday and Saturday classes. The course fee includes your own shinai, the bamboo sword used in Kendo, membership of the Australian Kendo Renmei, insurance and instruction. Please note, Kendo involves strenuous physical activity and may not be suitable for people with some health conditions. 

Course dates:​

Courses are held either on Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 9pm or Saturday mornings from 10am to 12pm.
