Takeda Ryu (ISTB)
Kón'nichi wá! (or should I rather say oháyo gozaimas lol)
I am not only a newbie in this forum but I'm also newbie in the world of kendo.
I have never practised kendo in my life ... actually I was closest to kendo, when I practised kobudo and bo-jitsu I'm a karateka myself.
The reason why am I posting here is 'cause I need your help to find the right dojo to start practising kendo from start.
I'm living in Vienna (Austria lol) now and we do have some dojos here but the one, which programme is most interesting, is Takeda Ryu Sobudo.
Here you can practise Aikido, Iaido, Jodo, Jukempo and Kendo at the same time.
Well that's all nice and ok but it doesn't seem that this school is a part of any international kendo organization etc. so I'm asking you, if you know the dojo? Is this school good? Should I train here?

from my crummy german it looks like there are at least two clubs in Vienna for you to visit and this is the association that is affiliated with the European and International Kendo Federations.
