This Japanese martial art, meaning ‘sword way,’ descended from the art of samurai swordsmanship. Classes involve training with bamboo sparring sticks and armor along to teach the craft, along with its etiquette and tactics. These classes are athletically and mentally rigorous, developing aerobic endurance, balance, and coordination as well as self confidence and problem solving skills. Kendo is perfect for people looking to improve their swordsmanship, get an interesting cardio workout, and engage with a long history of martial arts.
