We had a nice evening at Kyumeikan Kendo Dojo where everybody has been very nice with us, even if you're a beginner. It gives you the opportunity to meet locals too and to learn about basics of Kendo.

Really intensive class and if you're really into martial arts you'll get a proper lesson. Everyone is really friendly and you learn so much about Japanese culture! Thank you everyone! すごくインテンシブなクラスでした。本当に武道とか特に剣道に興味があったら、しっかり習われますよ。皆さんは親切な人がいて、日本の文化もたくさん習えます。ありがとうございました!
