This class focuses on teaching basic steps of learning kendo terms in Japanese, etiquette & manners, footwork, suburi, and kirikaeshi.
Our instructors make the class fun and challenging for students so they wont loose interest. After getting used to all the basics, students are tested every end of the month to show there improvement. If they pass the first test, they are allowed to wear Kendo Gi & Hakama (Kendo Uniform).
