Alternate times due to Beginner course starting This Wednesday

Hi everyone,

This is just a reminder about the new Semester 1 2018 Beginner course starting tonight.

From Wednesday 14th March for 6 weeks the beginner course will be taking place from 7:30 – 9:00 pm.

There will be no training during these hours due to the beginner course running in the dojo.

From 9:00pm onwards they will be free keiko/training time for you to practice kendo.

You are also welcome to come from 7:30pm to watch the beginners course as well.


Kind regards,

Friday Training at Sam Cracknell 7:30pm – 9:00pm

Hi everyone,

I’ve just confirmed with Arc and we will have Sam Cracknell on Fridays from Today 19/01 until UNSW Semester starts 7:30pm – 9:00pm.

Training will not be similar to Mondays and Wednesdays as it is a different type of room to the usual.
Sam Cracknell is situated on the main walkway of UNSW with a big yellow sign wriiten ‘ARC SPORT’.
Here is a map and photo for reference

Hi Guys,

This week will be our last training week of the year 2017.

Monday 18/12/2017 and Fri 22/12/2017 will proceed as usual but there will be no training on Wednesday 20/12/2017 due to the gym closing early.

For 2018, our first training will be 03/01/2018 on Wednesday in the basketball court opposite our usual training venue starting from 8pm.

There will be no Friday training on 05/01/2018.

Normal training will resume in the usual room (courtside studio, ymca) from 08/01/2018 for Monday and Wednesday training starting from 8:15pm-9:45pm

For Friday training times in 2018, it will be finalised by the start of January next year.

Thanks everyone!
