DURATION: 5 weeks (classes are twice a week)


In 2019 we are running one course at Thebarton.

AUKC and USAIKC Course - starts on Monday March 25th at Thebarton Gym. Classes will be conducted on Mondays from 6:30pm and Fridays from 7:00pm.

You do not have to be a university student to join a beginners course.

The first class is free, however participants must pay course fees at the start of the second class to continue.

To ensure safe and effective group learning participants who miss classes without reason may be asked to redo the beginners course.

All you need to bring along to the first class is yourself, wearing clothing that you are comfortable training in. No jewellery (including watches and wrist worn fitbits as these can be damaged during training).

Anyone with a shinai can bring that along with you as well.

Please arrive early, so you have time to change and meet the instructors.


A dedicated children's class is offered at Adelaide Kenyukai Kendo Club. If you are a parent of a child 18 years and younger please complete the form below and you will be contacted with more information.
