Here, at Atlanta Kendo Kai, students are separated into different groups or classes based on experience. Each level of classes provides new challenges and techniques. Each level builds upon the last as the practice strives to perfect the skills practiced and learned. The Beginner classes break down as follows:
Beginner 1: Introduction of Kendo, Kendo etiquette, how to hold the shinai, swing the shinai and basic footwork.
Beginner 2: Breaks into several different groups as you learn more and refine the basic techniques, learn more footwork and build endurance.
