The way of the sword


About Kendo

Kendo is a martial art that originated in Japan and is based on the ancient fighting methods of the samurai. The main goal of Kendo is to achieve both physical and mental perfection through rigorous training with the bamboo sword, known as "shinai". Kendo focuses not only on technique and mastery of the sword, but also on the cultivation of samurai ethics, such as respect, integrity and bravery.


Characteristics of Kendo

Kendo training focuses on improving posture, cutting technique, speed and accuracy. Practitioners learn to control their body and mind through kata (pre-set forms), striking drills and simulated combat. Kendo is not just about victory or defeat, but about self-improvement and mutual respect. In addition, Kendo promotes concentration, discipline and the building of friendships between practitioners.
