In march of 2013, Renshinjuku kendo dojo organized a kendo workshop for a Japanese company’s dutch office. Two of our members explained the background of kendo, provided a demonstration and then taught a few basics to the assembled team. While one can obviously not expect to learn much kendo in two hours, the workshop does provide an excellent introduction and may entice people to give the sport a try. And because kendo is something so far outside of the normal comfort zone for many people, a kendo workshop can provide a bonding experience for a team that has otherwise grown accustomed to each other.
