ZNKR Kendo (全日本剣道連盟剣道) is a modern martial art form of Japanese fencing. It comes from the sword arts of ancient Japan, and is the modern incarnation of a centuries-long evolution. Kendo is made up of 2 parts, kata (fixed paired patterns of techniques) and keiko (sparring in bogu (armor)). We use two type of swords: a bokken (wooden sword) for kata and a shinai (bamboo sword) for sparring. Kendo is more than just learning to fence with a sword, it is also about proper discipline and spirit.
