There are a range of other Clubs and Activities held at Rivonia Club: Kendo..
RIVONIA KENDO DOJO:
The Rivonia Kendo Dojo is an South African Kendo Federation (9SAKF) affiliated club that aims at the promotion and development of Kendo in South Africa and the fostering of mutual trust, friendship and respect amongst its members through rigorous Kendo training.
The club also has the first Kendo Kids club that is aimed at developing kendo amongst children and teenagers between the ages of 8 and 17 years old.
The gymnastics gym at the club is now offering Parkour classes for children.
Parkour or free running is a type of exercise done outside in an urban environment. It is about learning how to negotiate obstacles. We use acrobatic and gymnastics skills to teach the kids how to get over, under or around any obstacles they might find in their path trying to get from point A to point B. It is a very social activity for children.
We started from scratch in February of 2021 and we now have 4 1-hr classes a week with kids ranging from 6 to 14 year old that have signed up. We currently have 3 coaches taking classes. We use the outside area out the back of the gym hall and we have specific equipment that we use including the outside walls of the gym hall and a scaffolding setup.
We are waiting for the South African Gymnastics Federation to introduce competitions soon for the kids to enter as parkour is now a recognized discipline of the South African Gymnastics Federation.
