Kendo is a Japanese martial art of sword fighting that involves combat with wooden swords (shinai) whilst wearing protective armour (bogu). Most of our members start as beginners, so don’t worry if you’ve never even heard of Kendo before- however this club offers great progression- for beginners and experts alike- as, so gives a true sense of accomplishment and something to work towards.
Kendo is a great sport which not only teaches its practitioners how to defeat an opponent using a sword, but also trains their bodies and minds to have the control, determination and discipline required not just in martial combat but throughout everyday life.
We are a friendly and diverse group of people, so don’t be afraid to come along and say hi. As well as our practises we have a wide range of drinking and sober socials, and you’ll often find us at park bar after training. We are also open to fun suggestions and ideas on activities to do throughout the year, and previous socials have included doing an escape room!
The first two taster sessions are free so don’t be afraid to come along and try it out, and if its later on in the year and youre thinking of joining just send us a message and you can come get a free taste of what its like. New members are always welcome, so come along and find out what the Japanese martial art of sword fighting is all about.
We practice at the Sports Park 8-10PM Wednesdays, in the Dance Studio and have a joint practice with the local club on Saturdays from 12-2/3PM at Kendrick School.
