Overview: Kendo is a martial art of sword fencing. "Ken" means "sword" and "Do" means "a way of life-long training". It is not just a way of physical training but mental training is a major goal in practicing Kendo. History: Sword fencing, along with horse riding and archery, played a major role in Japanese battles until the middle of 16th century. Therefore, training of swordsmanship was very important for Japanese warriors; however, since it is too dangerous to use a real sword for the training, wooden swords were used instead. Because of the introduction of rifles into Japanese battles at the middle of the 16th century and arrival of relatively peaceful era at the beginning of the 17th century, practicing sword fencing became less important in terms of preparing for a battle. However, people continued practicing Japanese fencing for physical and mental training. That's the origin of Kendo. But, at that time, it was not organized and different groups had different ways of training. We had to wait until 1920 for the official establishment of Kendo as a Japanese martial art. At present, around 8 million people world-wide practice kendo with approximately 7 million of them in Japan. Training suits and armor:

From New World Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Previous (Ken Kesey) Next (Kenites) Kendo Japanese Name Japanese Kendō Kana spelling Kendo (剣道 Kendō) is the martial art of Japanese fencing , developed from traditional techniques of Japanese swordsmanship known as kenjutsu . Since 1975 the goal of Kendo has been stated by the All Japan Kendo Federation as "to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana (the Japanese standard two-handed sword)." Kendo combines the values of martial arts with elements of sport; some practitioners stress the values while others concentrate on the sport. Kendo is rooted in the lifestyle and the spirit of the Samurai tradition. It is conceived as an extension of the “Way of Samurai” ( Bushido ), which is developed in conjunction with Zen Buddhism . Calmness of the mind, as in Zen “Enlightenment,” selflessness, courtesy, honor, mind-body unity, and other moral codes and virtues are taught through the practice of this martial art. Practice always begins and ends with seated meditation , and each match begins and ends with a bow.

Kendo is a Japanese martial art which means "way of the sword." Although several different martial arts utilized swordsmanship, this unique style of fencing made an appearance in the 20th century. It was recognized after the introduction of shina (bamboo swords) and bogu (body armor) created by Japanese master Naganuma Sirozaemon Kunisato. Kendo has adopted a concept of disciplining an individual’s character through the principles of Katana, which is a sword. The history of Kendo is very much associated with samurai during the Kamakura period (1185-1233). This period also marked the strong influence of Zen Buddhism on the development of Kendo. Those who practice Kendo are called kendoka or kenshi, which means swordsman. Kendoka practice the martial art with loud shouts, or kiai, which are said to express the spirit of fighting. In Kendo, strikes are only allowed to be made to seven target areas of the human body. All of these body parts are covered by armor, to protect the opponent from severe injuries. These target areas are the top of the head, left and right side of the head, both wrists (while they are held in different positions), the torso, and the throat. Because many attacks against these targets can result in fatality, certain body parts are off-limits to practitioners who are not senior experts. Since the founding of the International Kendo Federation (IKF) in 1970, approximately 8 million people worldwide practice Kendo. Its popularity is widespread throughout North America, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa.

Kendo We practice kendo under the guidance of the Houston Budokan and Sensei Darrell Craig Kendo classes on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month are open to younger students. In Japan, kendo is very popular and is taught in schools , as well as traditional dojos like the Chiba Dojo shown here. There are even taikai (tournaments) in Japan just for children As Sensei Darrell Craig explains in his book, The Heart of Kendo, "The aim of kendo, and of all Japanese martial arts, is not the perfection of a physical technique but the development of a flowing, flexible mind - a mind that is able to react to anything it confronts, instinctively, fearlessly, and without hesitation, regardless of the situation." Etiquette: At the start and finish of class, we bow to a kamiza, a scroll identifying our affiliation to the Chiba family. Typical Class Every kendo class begins with warm-up exercises . Because many kendo students start class immediately after attending iaido class, we do not have typically stretch out before regular kendo classes. If you are joining us only for kendo, please arrive a few minutes early to stretch out. Kendo is broken down into three parts: kihon (basics), keiko (practice), and kata (forms). We strive to practice all three components of kendo, with additional opportunities for practice during special seminars. Kendo students are also encouraged to study the form of iaido specifically developed for kendo students by the All Japan Kendo Federation:

Kendo Equipment Kendo is practised by kendoka, wearing traditionally styled clothing and protective armour (bogu), using a shinai (weapon) or two as weapons. Kendo may be seen as a Japanese style of fencing. The movements in kendo are different from European fencing because the design of the sword is different, as is the way it is used. The Purpose of practicing Kendo:
  • 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.
This will make one be able:
  • To love his/her country and society. To contribute to the development of culture, To love his/her country and society. And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.
Kendo training is quite noisy in comparison to other martial arts or sports. This is because kendoka use a shout, or kiai, to express their spirit and when a strike or cut is performed, the front foot contacts the floor in a motion similar to stamping. Around eight million people world-wide practice kendo with approximately seven million in Japan. Kendo is one of the Japanese budo and embodies the essence of Japanese fighting arts.

Kendo in Japanese literally means “the way of the sword” and true to its name, Kendo is the Japanese form of sword fighting or fencing. The martial art form of Kendo is defined as controlling the human mind, body and spirit through the adherence of the laws of the katana – a Japanese sword. During the year 1975, the All Japan Kendo Federation decided on a set of principles that would help define Kendo as an art form – this description gives light to underlying ideology, philosophy and beliefs associated with the martial art form of Kendo. “The Purpose of practicing Kendo is: to mold the mind and body, to cultivate a vigorous spirit, and through correct and rigid training, to strive for the 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. This will make one able: to love his or her country and society, to contribute to the development of culture, and to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.”
