We are based in the QMotion Sports Hall (432 Bancroft Rd, London E1 4DH) at Queen Mary, University of London.
Our goal as a club is to take people who are complete beginners to kendo and give them the skills to be able to practice kendo anywhere in the world safely and confidently.
We aim to teach a balanced view of the martial art, encouraging not only its sporting and competitive aspects but also a deeper, more introspective way of challenging your own mental and physical habits.
Practices are all free with an annual membership fee of only £50 for students and jobseekers, and £60 if you are currently employed full-time. Single term memberships are also available with £30 for students and jobseekers and £40 if you're employed full-time.
Beginners are welcome at any point of the academic year.
Commitment levels required:
University Taikai, London Cup, Lidstone Taikai
Competition dates are available on the BKA website and change are updated as competitions come up. http://www.britishkendoassociation.com/
