  • What is Kendo?

    What is Kendo?

    Kendo, is the art of Japanese fencing. "Ken" or tsurugi is from the character meaning sword. The character for "Do" or michi includes the meaning way or path which translates as "The way of the sword". A path in life which is followed through the training of kendo.

    Kendo practice is composed of many types of training. Each type has a different purpose for developing the Kendo student.

    Kendo, like other martial arts, requires discipline and a dedication to training. A new student begins with learning the basics such as: etiquette (reigi), different postures and footwork, and how to properly swing a sword. The student progresses through a series of skills preparing them to begin training with armor (bogu).

    It takes an average person from 4 to 5 months of weekly practice to learn the basics of Kendo before he or she is able to wear bogu.

    For more information please feel free to come to one of our Kendo classes!
