Would you like to start learning kendo?
Meikyokan Beginner's Classes will start on Thursday, April 2. Thereafter, classes will be held every weekday morning, from 7am to 8am.
If you're not quite sure if you'd like to learn kendo or not, you can just come to the first class on April 2nd and I will do a small demonstration and talk a little about what kendo is and how we practice. You're welcome to come even if you only very vaguely know what kendo looks like.
We won't be pressuring anyone who comes to our opening class to join anything, buy anything, or anything like that. It's just informational. And if you do decide to give kendo a try, there's no fees during the trial period (~1 month) and you don't need any special clothing or equipment. Just come wearing comfortable clothes.
Our goal isn't to have lots and lots of students. In fact, if you decide that you'd like to start learning kendo but would prefer to join a different kendo school, that's completely fine with us. We want everyone who joins Meikyokan to feel like our dojo is the right one for them. In fact, I think it's actually a very good idea to visit as many dojo as possible before choosing one to join. (The HKF list is here.)
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me (English or Japanese is fine). Or, if you prefer telephones, our dojo telephone number is 808.989-3068.
