This was my first time participating in learning about Kendo and Hiro was a great instructor. He's been involved in Kendo for 20 years, was very patient and friendly, and very knowledgeable with the history as well. The experience was very fun and enjoyable. Don't miss out on this experience! :)

This was a great and well-rounded introduction to kendo! We got to learn kendo techniques as well as the history behind the sport, all while being dressed in authentic kendo gear. Hiroaki was a very kind and knowledgeable host.

Hiro taught a very nice and basic level class of kendo. As someone who has never had the opportunity to try kendo, the class was an excellent introduction to the sport, showing the basics of stance, strikes, spirit, movement and mentality. Hiro also provided an excellent short history of kendo in Japanese history and shared his own personal journey around the world because of it. Hiro provides all the equipment so there's no hassle as well. 5/5 Excellent time!

A lot of fun! Hiro is very knowledgeable about Kendo because he has been doing it since he was 6! He always made sure we were having fun and we learned a lot in one session. Definitely recommend!
