How does it work?
The concept of Kendo is to discipline the human character through the application and principles of the sword. To this end, training is physically and mentally demanding. Decisive two handed cuts and thrusts must be made with full commitment which is expressed in the distinctive shout from the Kendo player. Formalities take place before and after exhausting training sessions in a hall where strict attention is paid to etiquette.
The Melbourne University Kendo Club has been practising Kendo since 1989, under the instruction of Yakov Macak and Kenji Sugimoto. The club is affiliated with the Victorian and Australian Kendo Renmei, the International Kendo Federation, and Melbourne University Sport.
