About Kendo
Origin of Kendo Kendo Equipment Kendo Practice Kendo Kata ... Kendo Philosophy Kendo, is the art of Japanese fencing. "Ken" or tsurugi is from the character meaning sword. The character for "Do" or michi includes the meaning way or path which translates as "The way of the sword". A path in life which is followed through the training of kendo.
K endo, the Way of the Sword is the art of Japanese Samurai Swordsmanship. It is rooted in the traditions of Budo, the Martial Way. It is both exhilarating and demanding to learn. In these pages we'd like to provide some information about Kendo and Kendo in the United States.
Origin of Kendo
Modern Kendo bears but faint resemblance to Kenjutsu and to its feudal origins of sword wielding samurai warriors which are today depicted in movies and television. Kendo, literally translated, "the way of the sword," cannot be traced to a single founder or given an exact founding date. The story of the rise of modern Kendo begins with the samurai and extends over the culture of several centuries. By the end of the 12th century, the authority of the Japanese central government had declined. Bands of warriors grouped together for protection forming local aristocracies. Feudalism had come of age, and was to dominate Japan for several centuries. With the establishment of the Shogun in Kamakura and military rule controlling Japan, a new military class and their lifestyle called Bushido, "the way of the warrior," gained prominence. Bushido stressed the virtues of bravery, loyalty, honor, self discipline and stoical acceptance of death. Certainly, the influence of Bushido extended to modern Japanese society and Kendo was also to be greatly influenced by this thinking.

4. Kendo, Jodo En Iaido In Nederland, Welkom Bij De Nederlandse Kendo Renmei
De NKR of Nederlandse kendo Renmei is de officieel erkende organisatie voor de Japanse Budo sporten kendo, Jodo en Iaido in Nederland.
Kendo in Nederland, welkom bij de Nederlandse Kendo Renmei
Kendo is een moderne Japanse vechtkunst die in Japan de grootste Budosport is met naar schatting 5 miljoen beoefenaars. (Budo is de verzamelnaam voor de Japanse vechtkunsten). Ook buiten Japan heeft Kendo grote bekendheid gekregen. In Nederland bijvoorbeeld wordt het al ruim 25 jaar beoefend en zijn er in de meeste grote steden wel Dojo (oefenzalen) te vinden.
Lichaam en geest
Al vele eeuwen is het zwaard in Japan een zeer geducht wapen gebleken. Het gaat in Kendo vanzelfsprekend niet meer om de praktische toepassing van de zwaardtechnieken. Het accent is al sinds de 17e eeuw verlegd naar de training van het lichaam en de geest door middel van het zwaard. Wat betekent dat concreet? Het beoefenen van de Kendosport is een explosief en uiterst geconcentreerd gebeuren.
Het Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo werd ruim 300 jaar geleden gesticht door Muso Gonnosuke. Hij combineerde de belangrijkste technieken van het Kenjutsu (zwaardkunst), Sojutsu (speerkunst) en naginatajutsu (hellebaardkunst) en gebruikte daarvoor een hardhouten stok van 128 cm lang en 2,4 cm doorsnede. De strategie en technieken van de school waren erg moeilijk om te leren en gedurende vele jaren werd in het geheim les gegeven. Het beoefenen van jodo heeft vele positieve kanten. Daarom besloot men in Japan, onder leiding van de 25ste hoofdmeester Takaji Shimizi Dai Sensei, om het Jodo voor meer mensen toegankelijk te maken.

OSI Kendô
Kendô er japansk fekting. Dette er en kampsport der utøverne har rustning og bruker bambussverd. Kendo har utspring i fektekunst fra føydaltidens Japan og bygger på en tradisjon som går mer enn 600 år tilbake i tid. Idag er kendo en spennende sport for både menn og kvinner der det blir lagt vekt på å styrke både kropp og sinn. Viktige elementer i moderne kendo er selvtillit, koordinasjon og flyt i både kroppsbevegelse og tanke. Interessert? Send oss en eller stikk innom en trening og se hva vi driver med. For å begynne trenger du vanlig treningstøy og innsatsvilje. Alt annet får du låne hos oss.
