Kendo is a modern competition sport or martial art based on the traditional sword arts of Japan. Despite being a full contact sport it can be safely practiced by all ages and genders equally.

As a club we attend competitions in the UK like the University Taikai and Mumeishi. We also organize training sessions with other city clubs in Southampton and Portsmouth or travel to different Universities for seminars. In the past years, we've had members in the winning teams at the University tournaments. As a club we have plenty of nights out where we get to know each other and we also do picnics at campus, get dinner in the city centre or visit the local pubs. Feel free to come to our beginner sessions, your first two sessions are free! Practices will be held: Friday 20:00-21:30 Marquee Building and Saturday 18:00-21:30 Glen Eyre Main Hall. Note: Please come to any sessions in any kind of casual sportswear or loose clothing. Shoes don’t matter.
