Real Kendo (Japanese Fencing) Experience in Tokyo

合計時間 : 2 hours

What to expect

Join this 2 hour class and have an authentic experience of kendo with a kendo master with over 40 years of experience! Kendo is a traditional Japanese martial art wielding a bamboo sword, the Japanese equivalent of Western fencing. Resistance to pain, adherence to the rules and respect to your opponent; kendo is where "Bushido", the code and honor of samurai, is still alive and well in modern japan. During this class, not only can you learn the basics of kendo, but you can also wear a face mask —normally it takes months of training before you get to wear one— and enjoy an intense exchange of sword blows with the master. Unleash your inner samurai and go for the kill; Enjoy the impact of each strike driving through your body!!

I am a 7th-dan kendo master (One of the highest grades attainable) with 40 years of experience. I usually give lessons to local Kendo swordsmen/women. I also operate a guest house for overseas travelers and provide them with a real kendo experience. In this class, you will join a regular lesson with local Kendo players, which makes your experience all the more authentic. Of course, I will give step-by-step instructions to beginners. Honestly I don't speak English well, but in the past I have welcomed hundreds of guests and guided them with heart and passion.
