This was such a fun thing to do. Our family of four all loved it, my 13 year old daughter in particular thought it was hilarious being able to dual with her parents. A memorable and special memory to have of our time in Japan. Our Sensei was very patient and he made it very enjoyable.

I was really blown away by my experience at Samurai Tours in Tokyo. Kenshi could not have been more accommodating. I was travelling alone, and while typically they only allow you to book with parties of two or more, I emailed Kenshi and he agreed to provide a private lesson after doing a large group lesson with a number of tourist. Not only did I get a really fun, once in a lifetime, type of experience and a great workout, but I also came away with a tremendous knowledge and respect for the sport. Kenshi's passion really showed. Kenshi also made sure to get plenty of pictures and video of the two of us during our lesson, which all of my family and friends have really enjoyed. If this type of activity is at all on your radar, I could not recommend any more strongly.

We were 2 American couples in their 60s who signed up for this on a lark. We knew nothing about Kendo and finished the event knowing quite a bit. Be prepared for a real dojo experience (exercise, sweat, mats, equipment, and odor). You'll get dressed up in Kendo gear which was an event all by itself. Then you'll start right in with practice. The guide knows his stuff, works with you as a student (not a tourist), and introduces you the some basics. Then you'll take a rest while hearing more about Kendo, the rules, and they play finalizing with some videos of tournaments where you can see it all put together. The last event is a little completion between the guide and each guest. Be aware, you'll perspire and will want to shower before you leave. Take towels, none are provided and don't expect a fancy locker room to clean up in. Remember, - this is an active dojo!

Was a great experience to meet Kenshi and share his Kendo 's knowledge.
We are now great fan of Kendo and would like to practice back to home town.
Experiencing this martial art in a local dojo in Taito is fantastic and authentic. Thanks Kenshi

My husband and I took this class together. My husband is sporty and I am clutsy, yet we both thought it was a good from a physical perspective. Teacher is good at tailoring to the class to both levels of fitness.

We learnt a bit about the history & art of Kendo as well.

It was a great introduction to the sport and we will likely try it again.

This experience was very good because the instructor knows a lot, and he made sure he shared with us quite a bit of history about Kendo and its origins which I loved. However, the experience could have been a lot better if the instructor had dedicated more time to teaching us how to perform better. I felt rushed through the learning of the martial art, and I felt that too much time was spent talking about the history given that we only had two hours. I feel that either the times for each activity should be changed, or it should be a 3 hour workshop instead of a 2 hour one. I loved the experience and hope the instructor makes the necessary adjustments to make it even better.

It was really fun, I enjoyed it!
The instructions was really clear, everyone got their time to practice and execute all trainings before the finale, which was super FUN. All against the teacher!

I learned a lot of the culture, rules in Kendo, basics to.

I enjoyed every second of it

And I will start with it in Sweden.

I even got guided to the station, kudos to the sensei!
