We are a friendly, social kendo club welcoming all ages and levels. Practices on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
We accept new joiners year-round at any time, and can make sure that an instructor is available to teach you whenever you arrive. Just come in with loose and comfortable training clothes for your first session.
Children and adult classes start at the same time at 3 pm on Saturdays.

Everyone here is so warm, friendly, and patient :) I had been worried about joining a dojo after moving to a new city, and I am so grateful that the wonderful people here made the transition so natural and lovely.
