University Dojo

Our University Kendo Dojo is open to the general public and welcomes adults to join training with us. The emphasis of this dojo is to promote kendo to individuals of age 16 years and above with little or no kendo experience. In particular we welcome university students and staff.

Classes are divided into groups so that both experienced players and beginners can maximise their learning potential.

Our Philosophy

The purpose of the University of Sussex Dojo is to promote adult kendo to the general public and to university students/staff in the area of Brighton and Hove. We follow a typical Japanese style university kendo curriculum and maintain close contact to some kendo dojos in Japan. Our approach is methodological and aims at promoting talent according to individual needs.



Promoting University Kendo

At the University of Sussex we aim at promoting kendo to university students. University of Sussex students have established a University of Sussex Kendo Society. You can find the US SOC on Facebook. The aim of the student run society is to share a common interest in Japanese culture and kendo.
