  • What age did you start kendo

    Hi.

    Was just wondering when did you guys start kendo? I noticed at my dojo that no one is around my age other than my friend who I brought with me when I started. I started kendo last September when I was 17 and I'm wondering what age most people start? Especially outside of Japan.

      I started when I was 19 at college in 2004. You're actually starting at a good age because you've stopped growing (vertically anyway) so you won't have to worry about out-growing your bogu and you're in good control of your hand-eye coordination compared to someone starting at a very young age. I wouldn't sweat it too much and enjoy it!

          Started when I was 24. Always wish I'd started earlier, but realistically, I would only have been able to start when I was 21 and moved to the US for grad school. In the long run, I hope 3 years will not make too much difference.

            06 - 74 = -68. my trusty calculator says I started 68 years ago in my past life.

                I always thought males stopped growing at age 21. Or at least I was taugh that in puberty class haha.

                I find that most of my senpai's are age 25 and up. I feel a generation gap when the club events. I can't relate to any of the stuff.

                      I started a few months ago, soooo 29 years old. 30th birthday in May is on a Kendo night. Which is a happiness.

                      Most people assume I am much more young than I am, and I sometimes have people in their early twenties giving me sage wisdom. Which is also a happiness.

                              I stared when I was 28 in 2009... Recently we had 3 guys aged 17 join our dojo... I think it is never to late or to early to start.... Actualy that is one of the things I realy like about kendo - that I train with people of diffrent age...
