Kendo, the art of Japanese Fencing, started out from an old martial arts heritage going back now over a 1000 years to the time of the classical samurai. In order to reduce bodily harm, the practice sword was born.
Focusing on disciplining the human character through applying principles of the katana (Japanese sword), UNSW Kendo club prides itself on honour and fairness.
What you can expect:
Our club provides an environment and opportunity for all people to practise Kendo.

This is both a competitive and social club.
The club runs a beginner course at the start of every uni semester that runs once a week for 4 weeks. The cost is $50 - UNSW Students; $55 - UNSW Alumni/Staff/Other Students; $70 - Members of the Public.
The beginner course intends to provide the participants with the knowledge and hence the ability to keep up with our regular training.
To continue from the beginner course, memberships sign up would be needed
