About this event

Kendo is the art of Japanese sword fighting that was practiced by the Samurai. The art of combat was a very important part of their lives, so they trained their sword skills every day. Kendo literally translated “Ken” sword and “Do” the way, together it means, “The Way of the Sword”.

The kendo armour permits realistic full contact fencing matches that follow the rules and principals of traditional Japanese swordsmanship. Students of kendo (kendoka) come from all walks of life and of all ages, women train on equal terms with men. Kendo can be safely practised by men and women of all ages.
