Umi No Tsuyosa means Force of the Sea, impetuous as a stormy wave and graceful as the morning breeze: so is the warrior.
Kendo is the ancient art of the Japanese samurai sword. Once a method of overcoming the opponent, today it is the way to improve oneself through the practice of the sword.
Once katanas were used, today it is practiced with bamboo swords, shinai, and bokutò, wooden swords, used for demonstrations of precision and speed.
The same term Ken Do means Way of the Sword, a reflection of the principles of Zen of the search for continuous inner improvement through the balance between mind and body.
The practice of Kendo includes basic exercises, called kion, fights called jigeiko and shiai, and kata, a series of 10 sequences of techniques handed down from the ancient Japanese schools.
Everyone can practice Kendo, without distinction of gender and age.
