“Kendo” as a word simply means “The Way of the Sword,” and thus could generally refer to any sword art of any culture. In our club, “Kendo” is an organized martial art and sport derived from the sword training of the traditional warriors of Japan, commonly known as samurai. We train in the methods, traditions, and customs as put forth by the International Kendo Federation (IKF).
