Really enjoyed Kendo like real samurai

Really enjoyed Kendo like real samuraiOur session just started with how to hold a bamboo sword.Really enjoyed Kendo like real samurai

First,try practicing swing called 'Suburi' in Japanese.

It's just warm-up, then,let's try hitting the opponent's kendo protector by 3 kendo techniques, calling ' Men', 'Kote', 'Dou' ! 

Before and after training, we never failed to bow in order to respect each other , because it's important etiquette in samurai .

Spiritual refinement was required as well as the acquisition of its techniques.

We all did it very very well . That 's amazing ! We looked like real samurai, didn't we ?

Hello! My name is Mayumi.
I'm a licensed English tour guide and also a Kendo instructor certified by the Japan Kendo Federation.
I used to work for a travel agency for four years and took people from Japan and abroad to a lot of nice Japanese tourist attractions.
As for Kendo, one of traditional martial arts, I am at the 5th grade level called " go-dan" in Japanese. In the world of Kendo, more than a 4th grade level is considered to be the master level. I've been doing Kendo for over 20years .Historically, Kendo is closely related to samurai, so I usually perform just like the real samurai during the practice.
I 'm looking forward to having a good time with you!
