My first Kendo class was really a great experience! Everyone is welcoming you and offering guidances. A fastidious practice which brings you back to a focus that we so often let go for futilities, I love it.

I was disappointed. All we did was take our sword in and out of the sheath.

About This Deal

A sword demands the utmost respect from its wielder, lest it grow dull from constantly repeating, "That's Mister Sword to you." Keep your blade quiet with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

  • $29.99 for three samurai-sword, kendo, or German longsword classes ($90 value)
  • $79 for five kendo classes with a take-home sword ($185 value)
  • $109 for five German longsword classes with a take-home sword ($250 value)
  • $119 for five samurai-sword classes with a take-home sword ($300 value)

During samurai classes, students begin their training by learning the feel of a wooden practice sword, which is curved to imitate the blade of a traditional Japanese katana. Through rigid repetition of the basics, pupils advance to cutting with dulled metal blades and eventually sharpened brands, called shinken. Organized by experience, classes are open to both beginner- and intermediate-level swordfish and humans. Students who opt to take five classes receive a take-home sword following the third lesson.

Those who choose longsword classes pick up skills in body coordination before they practice sparring and test cutting, and kendo students sport traditional uniforms and protective gear while learning to master the art’s signature bamboo sword. Children as young as eight are welcome to participate in the three-class option.
