Use a sword to know the soul of Old Japan
Kendo is cool, you'll learn how to use a sword without getting hurt.
You'll get a feel of the Samurai!
But that's not all, and knowing how to use the sword is not the point.
Kendo is Budo, you meditate before a session and also after a session.
You bow before a match, and you bow after a match is over.
You learn how the appoint will make the next move by reading there body movement. It's hard to see the movement of the other person's eye due to the thick metal wire that cover's the face.
I'd say Kendo is a sport but what you learn from it is much more then how to use a sword.
How your posture is important.
Your mentality is important and to respect other people.
There are Kendo Dojo's that use English.
I'd recommend to goolge a Dojo that speaks English if you don't speak Japanese.
It'll be more interested to know how BUDO can change they way you feel and act.
