Due to the potential threat of the coronavirus, the Melbourne Budokai Committee has decided to close the Kenshikan dojo and suspend all activity there. This decision will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. The committee is sorry to do this but is appropriate in light of what's been happening in the community. We hope you understand this decision.
Welcome to the Melbourne Budokai website.
The Melbourne Budokai (formerly the Melbourne Kendo Club) has existed for over forty years. We are a martial arts club that trains in the Japanese arts of Kendo, Iaido, and Naginata.
The Kenshikan Dojo has been the home of The Melbourne Budokai (MBK) since 1990. It is the only purpose built Kendo training hall in Australia and also serves as the home of the Victorian Kendo Renmei, the state governing body for Kendo and Iaido, located on the fringe of the Melbourne CBD, in West Melbourne.
