Brighton Kendo Expands

IMG_2653

Brighton Kendo is based at the University of Sussex. It is now expanding by opening its doors and welcoming children.

For that purpose we have started new kendo sessions at a new location called Konami Dojo. “Konami”  means small wave, and “dojo “is the place where kendo sessions are taking place (Brighton Aldridge Community Academy).

Kendo is now open to children of age 6 years and above and families  on

Saturdays from 9.30-11.30 am.

This dojo is particularly good for kids and adults with no or little kendo experience. Just turn up for a free taster session
