Interested in Japanese culture or traditional martial arts? Come practice kendo at the Monash University Kendo Club! Classes are run by qualified instructors and everyone is welcome to join.


Monash University Kendo Club (MUKC) is not your typical university club – we're a spirited bunch wielding bamboo swords! Affiliated with the Victorian, Australian and International Kendo Federations, we're all about training both mind and body through the Japanese martial art of kendo. Picture this: intense swordplay, spirited matches (shiai), and passionate shouts (kiai).

Our yearly beginner's course kicks off the fun in February/March, aligned with the university semester. With two to three weekly training sessions, social events, and competitions in the mix, MUKC is the go-to place for anyone, regardless of background, wanting to dive into the fascinating world of kendo. Join us for an unforgettable blend of tradition, camaraderie, and a dash of bamboo sword excitement!
