Oxford University Kendo Club is open to new members of all levels, including beginners.

Neither previous experience with martial arts or great level of fitness is required for beginners, nor is equipment necessary to start.

There are numerous opportunities to compete with the club, most notably in the UniTaikai competition against other UK universities (around Feb), and the varsity match against Cambridge (around March), as well as at competitions around the country. We also regularly host student visitors from Japan.
