If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ruoyun Hui.

Ever wondered what kendo is? Ever wanted to try out a Japanese martial art? Ever thought that the samurai looked pretty cool? Ever wondered what inspired the lightsaber duels in Star Wars? Or maybe just wanted to chill out by the river at John’s Backs? Well. Here’s your unique chance to find out the answers to all those questions. And much more.

Come and join me and a few nice people from the Cambridge University Kendo Club for our free kendo taster session. We will say something about kendo. Teach you how to use a katana. Show you some of the traditional techniques and forms. And then have a picnic at John’s Backs. Some drinks and snacks will be provided. Pimm’s. Strawberries with cream. But we’re poor students, so please BYOB and bring whatever else you like.

Everyone welcome! Spread the word. Bring your friends. Drop in anytime.

14.00–15.30 – Kendo Kata Taster @ John’s Backs 15.30–18.00 – Picnic / drinks @ John’s Backs

Hints & directions: Enter John’s Forecourt Gate with infinite confidence, follow the white rabbit to the Backs and look out for friendly-looking people in dark blue samurai-like martial art clothing. If the weather fails – we will move to John’s MCR .

This talk is part of the Cambridge University Kendo Society series.
