Try Something New!!
You are guaranteed a warm welcome when you come to our dojo (school)
where we will start your training with the very basic elements of kendo
and progress you towards becoming a skilled practitioner in the use of
New starters to kendo are taught how to hold the swords we train with,
how to strike the target and how to move via specific footwork. You
don't wear armour to start with as the basic elements of the training do
not require it, all you need to have is a t-shirt and jogging bottoms
and you're good to go.
We have club swords that you can use and on completion of your starter
course we will issue you with your own shinai (bamboo sword) and bokuto
(wooden sword) that are yours to keep.
no time during the training will you use a real sword as this would be
far too dangerous and we would go through far too many new starters!!
is from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Thursday nights and 12.30 to 2pm on Saturday
at Fitness First Gym, Aspect Leisure Park, Bedford . You don't have
to attend both sessions but with anything in life, the more you practice
the better you will become.
is a life long activity and it's practitioners range from 4 years old
right up to people in their old age. The training is rigorous and quite
physically demanding so if you would like to try something different,
something new, then get in touch, have a chat with us and I'm sure
you'll be pleased you did.
