Our Kendo Instructor and students
The Kendo class offers a unique experience connecting the student with the traditional spirit of Budo (Martial Arts) developed by the samurai in the ancient Japanese time. The Bushido Code of honor, in a contemporary interpretation, becomes very familiar to our students. The basic stances and Shinai (the bamboo sword) techniques are performed between three and six months in solo patterns. then the partner work begins, using the protective armor (the BOGU). The pre-established sparing is the first stage, called KIRI KAESHI, where on a support of routine, the main goal is to improve the timing and distance (MA-AI).shiai, sparring After this practice becomes familiar, the student will advance to the free sparing. In this class the harmony between Mind and Body is very highly expressed in fascinating speed and explosiveness, where the focusing and timing are imperative. The Kendoka must judge the situation incredibly quickly and act accordingly. The Mind, Body and Spiritual improvement ultimately produces the "Zanshin," the spirit of fight, which is an old samurai attribute. A self-discovery which is rewarded.
