Memphis Kendo Club

Kendo is the Art of Japanese fencing.  The character for "Do" means "the way" or "path" which translates as "the way of the sword."  Kendo represents a path in life that is followed through the training of Kendo.  The Concept of Kendo:  To discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the sword (Katana).

Kendo Practice:  Consists of various training drills intended to develop the Kendo student (Kenshi).  Kendo, like other martial arts, requires discipline and a dedication to rigorous training.  New students begin with learning the basics:  etiquette (rei-gi), different postures, footwork, and how to properly hold and swing the sword (shinai).  Students progress through a series of skills preparing them to begin training with armor (bogu).  Class is for all ages.
