A 8-week Kendo beginner course will start on 8 October 2016. This course aims to teach you the Kendo basics, including etiquette, footwork, cutting techniques and various training methods. You should be ready to train in the traditional Kendo uniform and armour about mid-way through the course. By the end of the course, you will be ready to merge into the Sydney Kendo Club's regular Wednesday and Saturday classes as well as be graded at the NSW State Kendo Grading.

$200 (this covers the 8-week course fee, Australian Kendo Renmei and NSW Kendo Association annual membership fee and insurance cover, shinai - bamboo sword).

During the course, the instructor will discuss about purchasing your own uniform (kendogi and hakama) as well as your own armour (bogu).  These items can cost from $500 upwards.  These items usually last for many years, so they are certainly good investment if you would like to continue practicing Kendo beyond the 8-week beginner course.
