Kendo, meaning “the way of the sword”; is an armed Japanese martial art that is derived from ancient samurai swordsmanship (kenjutsu). Kendo uses bamboo practice swords called shinai and protective armor called bogu in vigorous training to build physical skills, sharpen mental focus, and develop discipline in one’s own character. The Kendo Club practices under the guidelines of the All United States Kendo Federation and is a member of the Midwest Kendo Federation. We practice to improve our knowledge in Kendo, cultivate discipline in our lives, and to create lasting friendships through training and competition.
