Sword Class NYC was founded in 2009, as a satellite school of the Sung Moo Kwan Kendo Academy, the largest school of its type in the United States. Sword Class NYC is the only school in the United States that offers both eastern and western sword styles side-by-side, encouraging exploration and discourse between the divergent forms. The official name of Sword Class NYC is Sung Do Kwan (in Korean – Seitokan in Japanese), which means ‘Academy of the Sacred Sword.’
Master Ben was great! Can't wait for next weeks class!!
Was awesome, teacher was very good at explaining exercise and to the point
Fun class! I enjoyed the historical aspects of the training. Now have to try to fit it in my schedule!
This class was tons of fun! We are definitely going to sign up for more!
it was great, kind teacher. I had a great time.
The staff was very friendly and professional. However, anyone interested in this class needs to know it is quite physically demanding. After my first practice my arms were sore and carrying things was a bother. Lastly, absolutely do not feel intimidated; especially if you are a girl or are not very athletic. Its very fun, learning an art of murder!
The class was fine and the instructor was very good really smart and enthusiastic. There were a couple of helpers there who were also good. The owner of the place was not very friendly however and could use some customer service skills, which ruined the experience somewhat. I wouldn't say that to his face though - what with it being a sword fighting class and all.
Fun, not too difficult. AMAZING instructor!
The class was interesting and informative, but my brother and I felt the entire time like the instructor resented us being there. He seemed annoyed that we weren't remember everything and executing it perfectly. A shame; it could have been extremely enjoyable.
