About This Activity

Description

Kendo is a Japanese Martial Art descended from the sword practices of the Samurai. Kendo challenges students in unique ways: how to remain calm, how to be creative, how to take the initiative, as well as how to persevere, and how to be respectful. This is a beginner class for student with no kendo experience. Students will learn to integrate their mind and body, (ki, ken, tai), through the fundamental techniques, strikes, and footwork. This course will prepare students to wear Bogu, (protective armor), but students will not be required to wear the armor during this class. With experienced instructors from Palo Alto Kendo Dojo who have taught Kendo in Palo Alto since 1987, students will learn sword fighting in a safe environment and bond with their Kendo peers.

$80 Materials Fee due at the first day of class.

Instructors: George Nishiura (Kyoshi 7Dan), Yoon Chung (4Dan), Eugene Lin (3Dan), Hiroki Minaki (3Dan) TA: Rosalie Wang (2Dan)
