What is Kendo
It is a competitive combat between two persons similar to western fencing. Victory is determined through striking pre-determined points on the opponent's body with a blade (shinai) made of bamboo while dressed up in protective gear. The principle of Kendo is "Learn to master the blade and shape yourself".

With its explosion of popularity in the Muromachi period, many schools and denominations have sprung up. It became an art of the warrior in the Edo period. In the 1970s, it became an international sport. Sparring is held in a ring about 10㎡ in size. The person who scores two points first wins the round. The sparring is kept to a standard 5 minutes time limit.
