I don't know them or anything about 'modern' weapons but it looks welcoming and the 'rule's of behaviour seem fair. I'd actually quite like to have a look at them, if the website is anything to go by and the blurb about their instructors I think it would be enjoyable. Far too far for me but I'd give it a go if I were nearer.
I certainly have no knowledge of the school/academy butt from looking at the site listed they seem to be very well organized and have a wide choice for the beginner to stat learning. If anyone ever gets a chance to visit or stuty I would love to hear their impressions of the actual training
Thinking about for next January, get the impression though that it could be expensive hobby.
I know what you mean. My husband has always wanted to do Kendo but even second hand the kit costs a lot so as our kids were young at the time he didn't do it. Now we are older and have the money he's not able to because of a back injury.
