剣道 Kendo



During my stay in Japan, I had the oportunity of practising kendo, a very japanese martial art. Kendo means "the way of the sword" and the main feature is a bamboo sword called shinai which is used as the main element. In my opinion, after reading some books by Mishima Yukio 三島 由紀夫, I associate Kendo to Yamato spirit ;-)



Naoko's father was very kind and taught me a bit about the basics of the sport, including some basic movements. Naoko's sister is also very good at kendo and A-chan as well! Every Japanese is potentially very good at some martial art!!
