Kendo (ages 15+)
Kendo, literally “the way of the sword,” is the martial art of Japanese fencing. Kendo is practiced with a flexible bamboo sword called a shinai. The shinai and protective equipment allow the Kendoist to practice realistic sword techniques with full contact but without fear of injury. All levels are welcome in this class.
