Denshinkan - the place of passing on the truth. The name 'Denshinkan' was given by Sotaro Honda Sensei, who is a 7th Dan Kyoshi and an ex Great Britain team coach. Our dojo was founded in 2010 by James Ogle, who is currently our coach at Denshinkan. James is a 5th Dan British team member who has competed in the 15th and 16th World Kendo Championships and was Taisho of the GB men's team for their first win at the Nations Championships and continued to be Taisho of the team at the 27th European Kendo Championships.
Denshinkan is proud to have two British team members, James from the men's team and Rosie from the GB women's team, including other Kendoka with varying levels of experience. Our members are very friendly and welcoming, so if you would like to try something new, fun and exciting, feel free pop in for a session to get you started. Kendo is a great martial art for both men and women of all ages and we urge you to give it a go, regardless of athletic ability. All levels of experience are welcome!
