Kenshin has been around since 2015, and is the only dojo that caters for the entire Cape Town area.

We strive to perfect ourselves, our minds, and our kendo through physical and mental training.

We want to promote and grow kendo in the Western Cape.

Anyone who wants to learn about the way of the sword,  is welcome to join 

the concept of kendo

To mold the mind and body,
To cultivate a vigorous spirit,

And through correct and rigid training:
To strive for improvement in the art of Kendo,
To hold in esteem human courtesy and honour,
To associate with others with sincerity,
And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.

This will make one be able:
To love his/her country and society
To contribute to the development of culture,
And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.
