Melbourne University Kendo Club
"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 in The University of Melbourne's West Stadium.
The Melbourne University Kendo Club (MUKEN) runs one Beginners' Course each year for those with no previous kendo experience who wish to learn the basics of, and eventually start practicing kendo. Click here for more information
