                             About Kendo – Kendo is a way to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana. 

To mold the mind and body.

To cultivate a vigorous spirit,

And through correct and rigid training,

To strive for improvement in the art of Kendo.

To hold in esteem human courtesy and honor.

To associate with others with sincerity.

And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.

Thus will one be able:

To love one’s country and society;

To contribute to the development of culture;

And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.

Kendo can be literally translated as “The Way of the Sword”. Aimed at improving the mind and body through the practice of swordsmanship, Kendo is a martial art with roots in the Japanese Samurai tradition, dating back well over a thousand years.  Swordsmen in Japan established schools of kenjutsu (the ancestor of kendo) which continued for centuries and which form the basis of kendo practice today. The formal kendo exercises known as kata were developed several centuries ago as kenjutsu practice for warriors. They are still studied today, in a modified form.  Kenjutsu is an umbrella term for all schools of Japanese swordsmanship. It uses bamboo swords (shinai)  and protective armour (bogu). Today, it is widely practiced within Japan and many other nations across the world.

Kendo is a physically and mentally challenging activity that combines martial arts practices and values with sport-like strenuous physical activity.
