Adelaide University Kendo Club


Kendo, the “Way Of The Sword” is the traditional Japanese style of fencing that today is a modern martial art practised throughout the world.

It’s aim is to train the mind, body and cultivate one's character through rigorous training and one-on-one combat using a Shinai (bamboo sword) while wearing traditional clothing and Bogu (Kendo armour).

At the Adelaide University Kendo Club, we train regularly through the year and accomodate all levels of learning and skill level. From the beginner to state representatives.
