For anyone interested in starting Kendo you can participate in one of our beginners courses.

COST: $110 non-refundable (includes shinai bamboo sword)

DURATION: 5 weeks (classes are twice a week)


This year we are running two courses at Thebarton and Flinders.

  • AUKC and USAIKC Course - starts on Monday March 12th at Thebarton Gym. Classes will be conducted on Mondays from 6:30pm and Fridays from 7:00pm.
  • KCFU O week Course - starts on Wednesday February 21 at Flinders Gym. Classes will be conducted on Wednesdays from 6:00pm and Saturday mornings from 9:00am.

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.


We are currently in the process of organising a class for children interested in learning Kendo. 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.
