Kendo Club

Kendo is the modern Japanese martial art of swordmanship descending from the older traditional martial art of Ken-jutsu. Kendo literally means “Way of the Sword”. Adopting more sport like qualities compared to Ken-jutsu the Kendoka (Kendo practitioners) will gain ranks and participate in tournaments. While practicing Kendo the Kendoka will wear protective equipment called Bogu and wield bamboo swords which are called Shinai. Because Kendo combines aspects of both a Martial Art and a sport, it can be both mentally and physically intensive. Kendoka will not only grow physically stronger but will also learn discipline, respect for others & respect for them selves. Kendo club is always accepting new members (beginners welcome). There is no membership fee but members will need to pay for their own equipment. This is a Tier III Club.
