Practice Times, Venues & Maps

Training times subject to change. Please refer to the website calendar for latest practices.

If you are planning to visit us please CONTACT US first to confirm the practice times and days.

If you are thinking of starting kendo, you are welcome to a free trial. New beginners can then continue their training by becoming a full member with payment due the first week of following month (e.g. trial at the last week of August. Membership forms and first payment submitted by first week of September).

REQUIRED: We require everyone to be registered with Oxford Kendo through this website under the registration tab. Additionally, we require everyone to be registered with the BKA after the trial period if they are a beginner. If they are not a beginner and will be joining our dojo, we require that they be registered with the BKA. The BKA registration is required for our club insurance. We cannot allow anyone to practice unless they are registered. It will also be the members own responsibilities to keep their annual BKA memberships current.
