What we study


Dojo Fees

Free lesson: Interested people are invited to make contact and come along for a free lesson to either watch or take part. Simply wear loose clothing such as jogging bottoms and a plain t-shirt.

Weekly payments:  As the dojo establishes itself students may pay weekly in cash. All classes are £8 for 2 hours training

Monthly payments: Once the dojo is established (early 2019) all members will transition to a monthly standing order of £30.

If Kenmeikan operates a 2nd training night (at The Kindle Centre or close to Hereford) then £50 month will give you access to train twice a week for 48 weeks/year

BKA Fees

Temporary BKA Membership: After an initial trial lesson all members must be covered by insurance, in this case, provided by the British Kendo Association. New members can benefit from a 3-month temporary BKA membership for £10.

Full BKA membership:  Once a trial membership has expired you can continue training with a full membership. Concessions etc are available. For details follow the link.
