The Kenshikan dojo is now open and training has been running normally for a few months. Due to our COVID safe plan, people who wish to visit to watch a training session will need to email the club secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours prior to inform us. They will be sent instructions for their visit.
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.
