KENDO

hello, we are the essex blades KENDO club


 

Kendo is the Japanese "way of the sword". We are a student sports society, but our practice sessions are also open to non-students. We welcome all levels, from total beginner to experienced.

Our coaches are very experienced and have practiced their art in Japan & Korea, our main coach is a 5th Dan. And other visiting coaches that are of similar senior level.

If you wish to practice kendo at the University of Essex, or even just watch a session, get in touch with us.

We practice regularly during the academic term, every Friday 8-10pm. Consult our calender for upcoming training times, Shinai's are provided.

For only £30 you can enjoy a year of being on a professionally coached team, enhancing your team skills and sharpening your athletic skills.
