The UniSA Kendo club focuses on teaching the modern Japanese Martial Arts of sword fighting.
Kendo practitioners will learn the way of Japanese fencing by using bamboo swords (shinai) and protective armor (bōgu) to have full contact training and matches. Users will also learn the traditional form (kata). Kendo ultimately combines both martial arts and sports activities together.
Kendo practitioners have the opportunity to compete at the SA State kendo Championships, new Members Taikai, Victorian Kendo Championships and the UniSport Nationals.
In order to join our regular Kendo trainings, you will need to complete our 8 week beginners course. This is generally held in April through to June. Please check our beginnings course page for further details.
