Our 2023 beginner’s course will commence on February 27th and is open to everyone, students and non-students alike. The first four trainings (Monday 27th, Wednesday 1st March, Monday 6th and Wednesday 8th of March) are FREE trial sessions - come along and see what kendo is all about before you sign up!
Meet the Monash University Kendo Club members, some of whom are state and national representatives, and see what makes our club a fantastic community to be a part of.
The course runs for 10 weeks (with 2, potentially 3, training sessions a week) and will cover the basics of kendo for complete beginners. No prior experience in kendo or any other martial art is necessary.
Yourself! No specialist kendo equipment needed in the trial week, we will provide all necessary equipment. Please also bring along a water bottle, and wear comfortable clothes you can exercise in. For the time being, you MUST also bring a face mask!
Please arrive by 5:30pm for a prompt 6pm start (for both the trial week trainings and regular trainings).
