Joining Kendo means buying your own kendo equipment’s that you need to consider specially if you want to join Kendo. Only 3 equipments needed for Kendo namely:
Shinai (Bamboo Sword) – This is the most important equipment for Kendo. It comes from different sizes that based on on your height,gender and age. We highly advice to buy your own. Club has its own Shinai where you can use but a possible additional monthly fee (monthly maintenance fee)
Kendo Gi (Kendo Uniform) – You can buy kendo uniform after 2 to 3 months of practice but you can wear kendogi (kendo uniform) anytime or even on the first day of practice.
FOR ADVANCEMENT/ ADVANCE CLASS:
Bogu Set (Armor) This is the last equipment you needed when promoted to advance class. It is somehow costly but consider a lifetime equipment. Club has its own bogu but a possible additional monthly fee (monthly maintenance fee).
