About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, May 20, 2021.

Kendo, "The Way of the Sword," is rooted in the sword techniques of the ancient Japanese warrior "Samurai." This martial art conditions the body and spirit through exhilarating and demanding exercises. The beginner class focuses on the basics and understanding the characteristics of kendo.
Please Note: This online class will be taught live through Zoom. A non-refundable material fee of $44 for Shinai (bamboo sword) is due to the instructor prior to the first class. It can be picked up or delivered to your residence. Please contact team@hsskkendo.org as soon as you are registered.

Kendo is practiced barefoot. Please take off your socks before the class starts. Please see if you can find a hardwood floor. If you decide to practice outside or in your garage, you may wear shoes and socks, though barefoot is preferable. Find a space where you can swing Shinai. Adult Shinai is about 120cm long. Please check if your ceiling is high enough. It will be desirable if you can use a large computer screen so you can see the instructions well. For audio, you may use a wireless headphone with microphone so you can hear well and speak. It will be desirable if you can set up a camera high enough from the floor so the instructor can see the whole body from the front view.
