Koseibukan translates into “Home for development of fundamental kendo” and was founded in 2006. The kanji for the MON is the hand work of the highly esteemed international instructor Sumi Sensei Hachi (8th) Dan Hanshi.

Our sessions are open to beginners where, from day one they are instructed through a linear programme with a step by step guide and under 4th Dan certified Kendo instructors. Hence any beginner can learn the basics to kendo. The induction course also includes the use of bokken and shinai.
