Well,kendo is,to put it this way,the way samurai fight. It was originally created to keep your fighting skills sharp and ready for combat .But not just that.It's also a way to keep a pure mind and soul, to be a better person.Kendo requires discipline,honor and respect.As if following the samurai code.Before you beat anyone,beat yourself,prove to yourself that you can,compete with yourself,evolve for yourself
Sorry,I got carried away xD
As you can tell,kendo isn't just a "sport" or a "martial art".We build part of ourselves through it.It has also lot to do with zen.
Now that I'm done blabbering you can tell me if you want to know something about kendo as a martial art or more of my zen/swordsmanship stuff x3
One day,Yumei...One day I'll tell you a secret...
