Explanation of each type of attender


You are welcome to join in for a session and enjoy kendo with us for free. The taster session offers you the opportunity to try out kendo at no financial commitment. You are welcome to take someone with you and to ask questions to the instructors and students. We will also provide basic equipment for you.

Beginners (Adults, Students, and Children)

This is an introductory course at minimum financial commitment. Perhaps you just like to do kendo for a short period of time or you are not sure whether you would really like to take up kendo as a regular activity. Then this course is right for you as it gives you plenty of time to enjoy kendo before making a full commitment.

By the end of this course, you’ll be familiar with some kendo kata, kata no kihon (basic drills), and kirikaeshi.

Please pay in cash on the first day of your course start.

Regular (Adults, Students, and Children)

You are welcome to join us as a regular member. As a regular member you are invited to  practice at all our dojos (University of Sussex Dojo, and Konami Dojo). This type of membership is beneficial to those wishing to purse individually defined goals such as gradings, attending external events, or going to competitions. However, nothing prevents you from enjoying kendo purely for fun and/or as a recreational activity.

Family Discount

We encourage families to practice kendo at the Konami Dojo and hence offer family discounts. To qualify as a family you would need to be at least three individuals, an adult and two children. For details, please contact email below.
To qualify as a family you need to be one monthly paying adult and one child.

Armour Rental

We have some armours available for rental at costs of £2 per session. Priority of armour rental is given to individuals attending regularly.
