Southern Alameda County Kendo Dojo offers classes in this ancient Japanese discipline ~ the first of four most important skills (sword techniques) required of a Japanese warrior (samurai).
In kendo, with its emphasis on speed and skill, not power or strength, the student develops coordination, stamina, posture and fitness. It also disciplines the mind in self-control, patience, concentration and confidence.
Visitors and beginners, age 6 and above (gender neutral) are welcome to observe:
Mondays and Thursdays: 7:15 to 9 p.m. (School-age students, until 8:30 p.m.)
