Kendo Lesson

Kendo is a modern martial art that has its roots in some of Japan’s most ancient arts, originally starting as samurai swordsmanship exercises. Nowadays, the way of the sword is practised across the world by millions of people who strive to preserve the samurai spirit of discipline.

In this activity you will have the chance to learn kendo at a traditional dojo, donning the iconic armour. An experienced instructor will walk you through the basics of the art and introduce you to different styles, all while trying to transmit the spirit and etiquette of kendo. Using a bamboo sword, you will swipe and slash your way towards the goal of becoming a kenshi (swordsperson) and embody the essence of the samurai.
