Katana Frankfurt offers a learning opportunity for those who are interested in learning the traditional art of the Japanese swordsmanship Kendo twice a year. We offer two fixed dates for beginning with the training. This ensures a consistent training plan and therefore beginners can only start training on these specific dates.
