Kendo, unlike some other forms of martial art, does not need to rely entirely on muscular strength but rather gives focus on the effectiveness in the delivery of the sword. By adapting techniques that adhere to this notion, female kenshi are able to achieve success despite most being small in frame.
At Nenriki, female practitioners receive the same level of training as the men. Strength of spirit is the core element in practice. We welcome any ladies who wish to start and practise kendo with us. For more information please go to our Contacts page.
Moreover, as a girl, I like the fact that Kendo does not require big muscles. It does not matter if you are small, tall, big or thin, it’s your technique and mental strength which make the difference, not your muscles.
I also love the atmosphere in Nenriki dojo. Since my first day I’ve felt part of the team and it’s like everyone already became a good friend.
