kendo banner

Kendo, “The way of the sword”, is a traditional Japanese martial art, similar to fencing. Originally created to preserve the sword arts after the need for the samurai declined, it has become a popular martial art and sport in Japan, and is gaining popularity worldwide. Kendo is inclusive to all genders and levels of experience, and we welcome enquiries from those with a disability regarding the accessibility of Kendo.
