"The Way of the Sword"

Kendo translates to ‘the way of the sword’. Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art using Shinai (bamboo swords) and Bogu (protective armor), originally developed as a safe form of sword training for samurai. Students also learn discipline and etiquette as they master Kendo skills. New student starts learning Kendo with just a Shinai, etiquette, different postures and footwork, and how to properly swing a sword. He or she progresses through a series of skills preparing them to begin training with Bogu.
