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!
