Reading University Kendo Society
University of Reading
This is the society's 4th year as a club, and we're always looking for new members who are looking to try their hand at Kendo, the traditional art of Japanese fencing. Kendo is a sport and martial art that involves combat with bamboo swords (shinai) whilst wearing protective armour (bogu).
Kendo not only teaches its practitioners how to defeat an opponent using a sword, but also trains their bodies and minds to have the control, determination and discipline required not just in martial combat but throughout the challenges of everyday life.
