Kendo

WINTER 2020 (Jan - Mar)

Kendo is a way to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana (Japanese sword) to mold the mind and body, cultivate a vigorous spirit, and through correct and rigid training, strive for improvement in the art of Kendo, hold in esteem human courtesy and honor, associate with others with sincerity and to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.

"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.
