Það sem verður gert

"Experience KENDO" offers authentic BUSHIDO ("WAY OF SAMURAI") learning experience through the lecture and basic motions of the traditional martial arts, KENDO ("WAY OF SWORD"). Tomoyoshi, the instructor, will give you a short lecture on how ancient swordsmanship of SAMURAI later developed into KENDO. He will share the heroic stories of ancient SAMURAIS including his own great-grandfather, Yoshishige Hayashi. He will also share the controversial influence of BUSHIDO values to this nation and his family into extremism especially in the period of WW2. He will end his story on how redemption came and led him to the current inner peace and to the life of a pacifist.

After the lecture, you will wear all the KENDO armors and will learn the basic KENDO movements. At the end, you will get to do the KENDO match to each other. Upon successfully completing the workshop, you will receive a beautifully designed “Certificate of Experience”. Tomoyoshi will teach you everything in English. Q&A is always welcomed. Photo taking is freely allowed. His wife, Tomoko, who also has a rich Kendo experience will assist ladies and children in any necessary way. It is a very safe activity but exciting enough to meet your adventurous expectation. We are confident that this is one of the best workshops you can find in this kind!

Staðsetning

The main venue will be Kyoto's own "Butokuden" in Kyoto Budo Center. It is the hall of fame and oldest Kendo Dojo existing in today’s world. It was built in 1899 and miraculously survived the WW2 devastation. In 1996, Japanese government officially recognized it as a nation's important cultural asset. Please be notified that in case the Dojo is occupied by other groups, we will be using the sub-Dojo within the same property of Kyoto Budo Center.

This was an amazing experience. We learned a lot and even got to have a match at the end of the session. Tomoyoshi's English was excellent and his storytelling was beyond expectations. Tomoyoshi and his wife were very warm and friendly; we felt welcome in this new experience and culture. Will recommend to all our friends!!

This is an absolute must! Even if you have no experience or interest in martial arts, Kyoto's history is embedded with such deep history that this Kendo experience just adds another layer of personal appreciation for that history. Tomoyoshi-san was extremely friendly and makes you feel very welcome. At the same time, he teaches you and expects you to follow the respect required in this beautiful, meaningful dojo and towards your partner and teacher. He starts off with an intriguing lecture regarding the history of the samurai, bushido, and later kendo, or the way of the sword. He tells of his personal connection to the Samurai, which is absolutely fascinating, and what led him to this point. Then he provides instruction on basic techniques and strokes in kendo, allowing you to practice with your partner and with him. At the very end, you get to spar with one another. It is an awesome experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

One of the best, if not the best, experience I actually had. There was something meaningful about it and exceptional overall. Tomoyoshi is a fantastic kendo teacher and I highly recommend his class if you’re pursuing that discipline.

This was an absolutely incredible experience! I booked this for my husband as a surprise gift and it went above and beyond anything I could have thought. It was such a pleasure to witness Tomoyoshi-san’s workshop and my husband can’t wait to come back to Kyoto and do it again!
