The next 4 week course

is during 2024

You MUST contact us via email to
the 2024 waiting list.

Our annual Beginners Course introduces Kendo, its etiquette and basic skills, to individuals from

13 years old and up who have an interest in learning Japanese fencing.

Beginners learn cutting basics, ettiquette, footwork, equipment care, target areas and specific points regarding giving and receiving strikes, as well as other aspects. Kendo study also involves predetermined exercises – some of the basic Kendo techniques – so a selection of these are also taught.

To join the beginners course, simply register your interest via email.

The course runs for 1 hour on a Sunday morning – 10:30-11:30am

The Beginners Course lasts for 4 weeks – £70

The fee includes:

1. A three month temporary membership to the British Kendo Association (BKA).
2. Weekly revision sheets.

3. A starting Kendo Kyu grade and certificate (Menjo).

The fee is to be paid in advance.

From age 13 years old to adults
Under 13s are accepted directly into the Junior Academy at specified times
please email us for details. Please visit the Junior Academy page.

Please let us know your age and gender for equipment sizing when you register your interest.

You will be sent some forms closer to the course date which will need to be filled in before you attend and sent by email or handed in on the first day of the course.

On completion of the course, you will be equipped with the necessary skills to join the main class and therefore eventually progress into full armour at the descretion of the instructors – and engage in full contact fencing with other established members.

The next course will be in 2024 – date to be annouced

Due to the popularity of Kendo, please contact us as soon as you can

to reserve a place on the next Beginners Course.

If you wish to join the course please send us a message.
We will then send a return email and give you details of the date when known.

Courses are limited to a set number of people, so early booking is recommended to

avoid disappointment.

If you already have over 6 months Kendo experience, there is no need to take a beginners course.
All levels and grades are welcome.

If you are interested in the course, then message us
