"The concept of Kendo is to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the Katana."

Kendo (剣道), translated literally means "the way of the sword". Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art based on traditional swordsmanship. Kendo is challenging both physically and mentally, combining traditional martial arts values and modern sporting elements. Kendo is fast, noisy, sweaty and sometimes even a little bit smelly.

MUKEN trains on Monday evenings from 5:30pm, Thursdays from 5:00pm and holds an optional session on Wednesday mornings from 7:00am in The University of Melbourne's West Stadium.
