Kendo is a rigorous martial art requiring exercise, coordination, and effort, so the beginner class is a great way to find out if kendo is for you. The goal of the beginner class is to teach you the basics of kendo, so that you can join the regular practice.

You will learn:

  • Etiquette
  • Basic terminology
  • How to hold the shinai (practice sword)
  • How to swing the shinai (practice sword)
  • Basic footwork
  • Basic attacking
  • Receiving strikes for a partner

We hold a new beginner class two times per year (January, September), and each class lasts approximately 6 weeks. We meet once per week at the Scout's Den in Cavan.
