What is Kendo? 

“The concept of Kendo is to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the Katana (sword).” (All Japan Kendo Federation – 1975)

 

Kendo is made of the two Japanese words of “ken “meaning sword and “do” meaning “way”. It translates as “the way of the sword” and is a martial art based on the concept of Kenjutsu and the legacy left to the world by the Samurai cast.

Thus, it is a very traditional martial art and still relies on the same equipment created in the Shotoku Era (1711-1715).

 

It is quite different to fencing which is considered its European equivalent. Fencing is a pure sport that can be undertaken until the fencer may not be able to compete anymore. Whilst, kendo follows the philosophy of Budo, which implies a need to improve oneself through its practice. As such many kendoka can carry on practicing it into their seventies or eighties.
