Kenjutsu means the art or technique of the sword. This is the traditional style of Japanese swordsmanship which focuses on effectively and efficiently defeating your opponent using the katana. While the sword is no longer the weapon of modern militaries, the self-discipline, mental agility and physical fitness you’ll learn will never go out of style.

At Fudoshin Kenjutsu our focus is on practical technique and strong defense with lots of full-contact, unarmoured sparring.  We teach technique, kata and basic fitness within a belt system.

There is no age limit, but children under the age of twelve should come and watch a class to see if they have the maturity to participate. Classes are run Monday and Wednesday from 8:00 PM until 9:00 PM.

Classes are 1 credit per month for Founders or otherwise are $10 per class!


While we do have equipment necessary for potential students to try the class, all students will require their own equipment to fully enroll. If you’d like any details or have any questions about the equipment please don’t hesitate to contact us!
