Join UsSKC conducts a 6-month beginners course up to 2 times a year due to space constraints.
There are no pre-requisites and everyone above 13-years of age may sign-up, but potential members are urged to read and consider the following very carefully.
One, Kendo may be physically demanding and members are reminded that they will need to be healthy and reasonably fit to participate. And be mentally prepared to follow strictly to rules and etiquette of Kendo.
Two, all beginners are required to attend BOTH and EVERY Wednesday evening sessions (1900hr till 2030hr) and Sunday morning sessions (0900hr till 1030hr) in Changi for the duration of their course. Absentees will be discouraged from continuing, as they will disrupt the progress of the class.
Every class is limited to 30 students and pre-selections are held just before the start of each class. Commitment, strong interest as well as determination are essential in the practice of Kendo. Should you have any doubts, please discuss them before joining the class as you may deprive others of a chance to join.
The course fee is S$100* per month for the 6-month course. The fee shall be payable 50% in advance (S$300), and a monthly payment of S$100 from the 4th month to the 6th month. You are also required to buy your own shinai (bamboo sword) which costs between S$50-S$80. As you progress, you will be asked to buy the uniform and in around 3-4 months, depending on your grasping of the basics, you will be asked to purchase the armour, which ranges from S$400 upwards.
