Wat je gaat doen

"Experience KENDO" offers authentic BUSHIDO ("WAY OF SAMURAI") learning experience through the lecture and basic motions of the traditional martial arts, KENDO ("WAY OF SWORD"). Tomoyoshi, the instructor, will give you a short lecture on how ancient swordsmanship of SAMURAI later developed into KENDO. He will share the heroic stories of ancient SAMURAIS including his own great-grandfather, Yoshishige Hayashi. He will also share the controversial influence of BUSHIDO values to this nation and his family into extremism especially in the period of WW2. He will end his story on how redemption came and led him to the current inner peace and to the life of a pacifist.

After the lecture, you will wear all the KENDO armors and will learn the basic KENDO movements. At the end, you will get to do the KENDO match to each other. Upon successfully completing the workshop, you will receive a beautifully designed “Certificate of Experience”. Tomoyoshi will teach you everything in English. Q&A is always welcomed. Photo taking is freely allowed. His wife, Tomoko, who also has a rich Kendo experience will assist ladies and children in any necessary way. It is a very safe activity but exciting enough to meet your adventurous expectation. We are confident that this is one of the best workshops you can find in this kind!

Welcome to "Experience Kendo in KYOTO” booking page!
My name is Tomoyoshi Yamanaka. I am your instructor in this workshop and very much looking forward to meeting you all! I grew up with a rich heritage of BUSHIDO tradition and KENDO practice. I am the fourth generation descendant of the last Samurai, Yoshishige Hayashi, who served the Hikone clan in today's Shiga prefecture about 150 years ago. It is my honor to introduce to you this part of Japanese culture. I trust your experience will be one of the most exciting, inspiring, and memorable ones during your time in Japan!

Waar je naartoe gaat

The main venue will be Kyoto's own "Butokuden" in Kyoto Budo Center. It is the hall of fame and oldest Kendo Dojo existing in today’s world. It was built in 1899 and miraculously survived the WW2 devastation. In 1996, Japanese government officially recognized it as a nation's important cultural asset. Please be notified that in case the Dojo is occupied by other groups, we will be using the sub-Dojo within the same property of Kyoto Budo Center.

Uma experiência que vale muito à pena se você deseja se aprofundar um pouco mais na cultura japonesa,a espada tem um papel muito importante no Japão antigo e o Kendo seria um resquício dos tempos samurais,o mestre Yamanaka consegue fazer muito bem a explicação sobre o Japão feudal,xogunato e a ligação de suas raizes com o esporte,além de acrescentar detalhes sobre o bushido que torna totalmente especial este momento,o local onde é realizado esta experiência é de muito significado e exala um ar de muita tradição Entre todas experiências que tive oportunidade de vivenciar está com certeza se tornou uma das mais marcantes e especiais RECOMENDO!

This is truly a once in a life time experience!! I booked this Kendo session mostly for my nephew who practices martial arts in Germany, but Tomoyoshi and his wife Tomoko made even absolute beginners like me feel at ease. Not only do you get to wear all the traditional Kendo armors and learn about Kendo and Samurai history, you will get to do all this on the oldest Budo Center in Japan. Tomoyoshi and Tomoko are incredibly knowledgeable and so fun to learn from! And Tomoko will take amazing pictures of you while you enjoy focusing on learning the kendo moves and language of Kendo. Can’t recommend this experience highly enough!!! Dorothee & Tobias

This was a fantastic experience while in Kyoto. I learned so much about the history of Japan and its culture. I also greatly enjoyed Tomoyoshi's personal connections to the history. The space was beautiful and for the most part, easy to navigate to. We bought an all day bus pass for 600yen and this made going there easy to do. I also found that the provided clothing and safety gear made the whole experience seem much more exciting. For having no Kendo experience, I thought I learned a great amount about the sports origins and basics.

Tomoyoshi is a masterful storyteller and genuinely wants you to learn about Japan, Japanese culture and the importance of cross-cultural exposure. This was a memorable and well-paced class in kendo but also the principles of the samurai code.

One of the most immersive workshops we ever experienced .Led by Tomoyoshi a passionate Kendo sensei who manage to profoundly affect those who participated with not just the tactical- historical but also the spiritual aspects of Kendo . The class is well paced and thoughtfully structured: from donning on the full armoured gear of a Kendo martial artist -learning the disciplined footworks -striking for points in an actual competition to taking part in a duel match with your partner. What a great introduction to this form of martial art for enthusiasts and potential practitioners alike. As a team Tomoyoshi and Tomoko are both great fun and a lovely couple . They did an impressive and wonderful job in unpacking the essence of Kendo in one fun-filled afternoon with lots of photo taking and interactions- my family and I are forever grateful to them for the best memory of our trip to Japan!
