Cambridge University Kendo Society 


About Us

Kendo is a unique and highly rewarding Japanese martial art. Kendo is Japanese for "way of the sword". We are a student-run society, but our practice sessions are also open to non-students. We welcome all levels, from total beginner to experienced dan grades. Several of us have trained in Japan and our coaches are licensed by the British Kendo Association. If you wish to practice kendo in Cambridge, or even just watch a session, get in touch with us

We practice regularly during academic full term and also out of term depending on the availability of venues, members and instructors. Consult our calendar page for upcoming training times.
