Liverpool Kendo Club
Liverpool Kendo Dojo is a member of the British Kendo Association which is a member of the European Kendo Federation and the International Kendo Federation. Kendo is the 'way of the sword', the Japanese martial art of fencing. It is a full contact martial art using bamboo swords and traditional Japanese padded armour.
Kendoka regularly attend Liverpool Kendo Club from the Wirral, Knowsley, Lancashire, Sefton, Halton, Cheshire, Lancashire and Liverpool areas. We also have visitors from further afield and high grade Japanese Sensei who pop in from time to time. Our sensei is one of the highest grades in the North West with over 20 years experience.
The club takes part in numerous kendo competitions and has produced Junior National Champions and British Squad Members. We also attend National gradings and seminars. Weekly practices are supported by fortnightly sessions on kendo kata at our Crosby dojo and are included in the monthly fees. The club is a non-profit organisation with all fees used to cover the cost of the venue, enter teams in competitions and pay for club armour that can be loaned to beginners when they are ready.
We have regular beginner's nights, which are free to attend, or you can come along to watch until our next event comes up. These events will include the basics of footwork and how to cut with the traditional Japanese bamboo sword. Throughout the course of your training you will continue to perfect these aspects, until you are ready to wear the full kendo armour, around 3-9 months depending on your ability. Once in armour you will take part fully in the class, which includes full contact free-sparring.
Unfortunately we cannot take new members outside of our beginner's nights but experienced kendoka are welcome at any time. Additionally we can only accept members 18 years and over.
