For those that are interested in starting Kendo instruction at Westside Kendo Dojo, we recommend that you come by the Dojo on practice night and watch. It will give you a good idea on what is expected in this martial art and what our Dojo is like. Please arrive early and introduce yourself!

Once you have decided that you would like to begin instruction, please fill out the following forms and bring them and your payment to class.

You do not need to have a uniform for several classes. Please wear comfortable pants and shirt that you can move freely in. When the head instructor has decided that you are ready, he will instruct you to get your uniform.
