Join Us

Are you interested in Kendo and want to know what it's all about? Do you want to try it out or just come and have a look? Join us at one of sessions for a free induction lesson!


During training kendoka fence with a shinai (sword) and wear a Keikogi and Hakama. On top of this they wear protective armour, called Bogu.

If you are just starting out you just need a T-Shirt and some comfortable trousers. We will provide the rest. Once you have decided that you would like to join us, you can sign up for our beginners'course which includes a shinai. The club also has a certain amount of armour that students may use at the end of the 8 week introductory course for £5 a month.


Cornwall Kendo Club is an official member of the British Kendo Association. Once you decide you want to continue your Kendo journey, you can apply for membership with the British Kendo Association (full or temporary membership). For more information please contact us.
