Any opinions about this?
Whilst I was looking for a Kendo dojo, I was also looking for an Iaido dojo where I could practice Seitei Iaido. Most of the iaido dojos were ridiculously far away from where I live, until I saw a Koryu dojo(Hokushin) around the town. The Koryu dojo seemed very legit.
Although I did hear a lot of things about Koryu and how it can screw one's Kendo. I would appreciate any advice from people who learns both.
Money's tight and it's what I have on hand, would there be any issues with using it for Longsword practice?
Hello! I am a student from the Bay Area passionate about kendo! I am wondering if anybody can give me advise in keeping my kendo instincts sharp during quarantine! I have been working on the basic, but I am curious if there are more exercise and tips out there, as this is a community is, undoubtedly, full of experienced kenshi. As of now, my daily workouts include:
100 Shomen Suburi
100 Sayumen Suburi
50 Lunge Suburi (2 sets)
50 Squat Suburi (2 sets)
50 Katate (left hand only) men Suburi (2 sets)
Do you guys have any other exercises, tips, and tricks?Thank you so much in advance!
Hello all I’m think about doing Kendo after quarantine in my state is over. Do you guys have any tips for taking kendo? I really love old Japanese samurai stories so I really want to try kendo and spar with other people once I learn the basics
Hello. I was wondering about the resistance of kendo armor, specifically the chest piece (Do), and here seemed the best place to ask.
Does anyone know how well does it do against a blunt steel sword? For example. Would it be able to take blows without being seriously damaged?
I’ve looked at some over the internet, but I look at some on google maps and it’s like residential buildings. Anyone know of any credible and still running kendo clubs in the south Florida are? Thanks for any help

*Edit no Thursday practice* got mixed up with my home dojo practice sorry for the confusion
if you haven't seen them fighting, here is one example:
I'm sure many of you have seen this but I only found minor discussions in this sub. Since the post was 6 year old I though I'd make another to get updated opinions. This was a point of discussion in our club and we even meme'd about it when someone got too aggressive.
What do you think about this style? What do Japanese senshi that compete against them think of it?
So I'm from Rio de Janeiro, a state in Brazil, I reaaaally wanted to start practicing kendo, the problem is I can't seem to find a dojo around here, not with Google at least (besides the Niten Institute) Se você é um colega BR eu realmente queria ajuda pra descobrir de existe algum dojo sério no Rio Obrigado, Thanks.
Hey guys, I'm back. So I was reading online that there's is a school of Kendo that uses two swords. So I was wondering if that was the exception, or if there are other schools that use different gear and whatnot.
I have seen people push their opponent to the ground. However, how far can you take it?
I love kendo! I go to ISKD and I get along with my awesome friends
So, any old folks out there (45+) still doing Kendo? How do you train and keep pace knowing that you're not 20ish anymore? What are some of your recommendations for staying in Kendo for the long haul without burning yourself out past recovery? Thanks much :)
I've been really interested in doing kendo for awhile and just recently became interested in doing iaijutsu as well, and luckily for me there happens to be a dojo for both close enough to me that I could reasonably attend both classes.
I have zero background in martial arts and I'm only a little versed in either discipline, but iaijutsu seems very disciplined and zen, while kendo provides the opportunity to spar and apply what you learn in the dojo practically, unless I'm mistaken. It also seems like they cover different things, from what I can tell you don't use iaijutsu in kendo and vice versa, so it seems like it would be reasonable to attend both.
Is it a good idea to attend both simultaneously, or should I try one of them before the other? Is it normal to try both disciplines or do people tend to focus on one or the other?
Disclaimer: I don't know anything about Shida outside of AEW aside from Emi Sakura being her long time mentor
The kendo stick is cool with the super ornate kimono but ever since first seeing her ever at AEW, I always felt she'd look cooler with a katana to really fit that onna-bugeisha (female warrior) look or even with a tachi (predecessor to the katana that was longer and worn edge down) to emulate Tomoe Gozen, the most famous female Samurai in Japanese history and legend.
That is unless the kendo stick is a tribute to her time wrestling back in Japan.
EDIT - Jesus Christ people, I'm talking about her walking out with one (dulled one obviously or even a prop one) for a cooler aesthetic not brandishing it against an opponent during a match.
Hey guys, I wanted to start doing a new martial art, and I thought that Kendo looked really fun, and I wanted to try it, but the catch is that I will be leaving around the end of summer/middle of August, so I wanted to know if 3-4 months would be a good amount of time to spend at one dojo? (If I like it, I will probably continue when I move)
So, I was on my fifth year of karate when I dropped for multiple reasons. Now I'm looking for a new activity. I wanted to stay on japanese martial arts because I liked the approach karate has with learning. But I really hesitate, since I've got what I think is a problem: I really like being on a fight, at least with my comrades at the dojo. I'm not the type of person that likes punching people for the pleasure, but landing a succesful hit really satisfies me. Do you think that kendo could fulfill me ?
Else, what are the advantages of kendo, what has it brought to you, and what are usually the lessons build like ?
Olá, venho aqui a todos divulgar uma bela arte marcial pouco praticada pelo Brasil. Você que é otaku, (Sim, você mesmo!) já conhece ou você que não conhece e tem interesse em participar podem saber mais através deste site ou visitar esta página do facebook.
Kendo é uma das mais prestigiadas artes marciais Japonesas. No japão, possui mais praticantes do que o esporte olímpico do Judô. Não pretendo dar uma aula de historia do Kendo nem explicar demais sobre o que é pois existem MUITOS recursos online que conseguem responder suas perguntas. Caso queira eu mesmo posso sanar dúvidas por aqui, só perguntar nos comentários ou por mensagem direta mesmo.
O grupo de Belo Horizonte existe desde 2008 e tem ligação com a Associação de Cultura Nipo-Brasileira que fica no Nova Cachoeirinha. Em 2018 foi feito na cidade o primeir... keep reading on reddit ➡
I Would Appreciate if you guys could help me find any Izuku x Kendo fics, Thanks!
My name is Brooke Falcon, and I am currently seeking members to start a Kendo club at Tech.
Kendo is a Japanese martial art derived from samurai sword techniques, called kenjutsu. The primary purpose of kendo is to strike your opponent with your sword in a swift, precise manner. However, kendo is not limited to physical strikes.
Kendo translates directly to "the way of the sword." Kendo is a way of life. Kendo is a philosophy. When one practices kendo, one refines the self.
I can promise you two things if you decide to join:
1.) Kendo isn't lame. You will build explosive strength, improve cardiovascular fitness, and develop your hamstrings, biceps, shoulders, tris, and chest. You will gain personal confidence and grow as a person.
2.) Kendo will heal your mind and toughen you up for whatever life throws at you. I am speaking from personal experience here.
If you are interested, please contact me. I will give you more information on my vision for the club.keep reading on reddit ➡
Does anybody else get annoyed by the design of that house after kendo.
Why is it the only one to have a back door to that alley?
Why when you go upstairs is the 1 room to the right but then the kitchen etc is to the left? That'd make the house a weird shape.
Just bugs me and wondered if anyone else noticed 😂
I'm beginner in Koryu bujutsu, i made lot of research about my style and others styles. I've see few school of martials with the Gekken method (or Gekiken) for the fight practice. I can quote Owari Kan ryu and few of lineage Shinkage ryu or Hokushin Itto ryu.
Now i have a question , do you think that a praticionner of Koryu with no Gekiken method and others thing like this, can learn the Kendo for make compensation in fight ?
More interesting question , for the all koryu praticionner's, the Kendo can give us advantage or something like this?
Thank you for your time,
Take care of yourself during this time.
I've reached 3rd dan this year, and my sensei has told me that, to improve my focus I need to better control my breathing.
I was taught in jigeiko and shiai to breathe in at a moderate speed, keep my breath until I launch the attack, and breathe out strongly with the kakegoe.
I do find it difficult though, after a short while the feeling of lacking air makes me want to rush in to attack. So that made me wonder about how you breathe in Kendo? Is there a special way for you, or do you just breathe in the usual way as I used to for a long time.
And, how do you manage that sensation of lacking air? I feel like I'm so used to breathing without thinking about it that this new method feels difficult to me.
I found that method of breathing in various excellent Kendo websites for those interested in reading more about it :) :

I have been replaying RE2make and I have noticed a similarity between Emma Kendo and infected Sherry Birkin in that they both seem to show infection around the eye. Has it been explained how G inplants potential carriers?
I wanted to know whether there is any significant risk for retinal detachment in Kendo. I used to do boxing, karate and CLF kungfu (started boxing when I was 16, kungfu when I was 8 and Karate last year when I was 23) and have relatively severe myopia (even more severe post buckle surgery, -10 in left eye). A tear probably developed on its own and getting hit in the eye during boxing, karate or kungfu probably exacerbated the problem. I have been forced to give up all three and it's been a hard pill to swallow.
I recently went for my 4 months post surgery check up, and the doctor said everything was fine. So, I'm trying to pick up my passion again.
I'm looking for a martial arts that doesn't involve getting hit directly in the eyes. I thought Kendo was a perfect fit until I looked up "kendo and retinal detachment." Some claim it's not that big of a deal, others say it's better to go do kenjutsu or something without any contact at all. At this point I am not so sure what to belie... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey y’all is there any fencing or kendo club or something similar at the U?
Based on what we see in Re2 and Re3 Remake. She like Jill seems to be highly resistant to the T-Virus. If we follow the timeline, she was infected before Jill arrived at the Gun Shop around the evening of Sept 28 and she still hasn't fully turned by the early morning of Sept 30. Just something i noticed :)
That seems to have been put there on purpose, although there is no other reference to this officer who is holding up in a restaurant kitchen with a couple of survivors.
I reckon that may be a hint for a DLC, what do you guys think? Similar to the sheriff’s ghost survivor mode in RE2 maybe?
Hello So, I'm in the jam where I have to monitor my HR while exercising - I'm in good shape, just have to avoid extended high intensity training. I practiced Kendo a couple of years ago and have laid off since I've had to slow down a bit. I'd like to come back, but am unsure how to correctly monitor my HR. I know that fitbits (on the wrist) are useless because of the swinging of the arms and such...I DO have a chest strap blue toothed to my smartphone (that's what I've been using in the gym the last couple years). This works very well for the gym, but I'm not sure how to use much of anything to real-time monitor my HR. Anyone in the same boat? Any ideas? I miss kendo badly and would like to get back to it....Thanks a bunch Brett
Hey! I’m highly interested in Kendo. But there are two issues I’m facing:
Still, I want to learn Kendo! Any advice??
