Welcome to Bergen Kendoclub's english info page.
Put very simply, Kendo is the art of japanese fencing. It is practiced with bamboo swords wearing light armor.
We are a small group that have been practicing kendo in Bergen since 1986, at present we are practicing in the elementary school Fridalen skole (first floor left hand side) each Monday (17-20) and Thursday (18-20).
For location se map.
We arrange a 3 month beginners' course each term, starting in september and january. All people, young (above 14 years) and old, male or female are welcome to try it out to see what kendo is about.
If you are in Bergen for a shorter or longer stay please bring your bogu along and practice with us. Send an email to get the latest info on practice hours.
