Your first session will be completely free of charge. Thereafter our monthly membership fee is £30.
There is also a charge for insurance, which is due yearly. This is paid to the British Kendo Association and is currently set at £45 for full membership although concessionary fees are available. they do offer a trial membership of £10 for 3 months, which is taken into account if you change to the full years membership.


Students of Iaido (Iaido-ka) begin their training with a wooden training sword (Boken or Bokuto) and soon after start practicing with a metal training sword called an Iaito. Only once the student has reached a suitably high standard, will s/he be able to use a sharpened steel sword known as a Shinken.

As Iaido employs the use of real weoponry, training is normally concentrated on individual practice. Paired training of techniques is undertaken with wooden practice weapons.
