21. About Kendo
Basic information for starting out in this Japanese martial art.
KENDO Art of the Samurai Kendo means "way of the sword" and is the traditional martial art of Japanese fencing. Kendo players fence with flexible bamboo practise swords ( shinai ) using both the edge and point of the sword to hit targets on their opponent's armour . The four main targets are the top of the head, the throat, the abdomen and the wrist. In budo, Japanese martial arts, "do" refers to a path or way to self-improvement through martial training. Kendo teaches not only physical fencing techniques but also a philosophy which is inherent to budo. Kendo develops strong spirit, positive attitude and respect for others. A Brief History of Kendo Around 900 AD, Japanese smiths developed the curved samurai sword by improving on earlier Chinese and Korean designs. This was the start of the Japanese style of fencing, as the shape and size of a sword influence the techniques used to wield it. The finest swords were made around 1300 AD and fencing schools exist today which date back to that period. The main influence of modern kendo, Itto-ryu, dates to the 15th century. Fencing was originally practised with a steel or wooden swords, often resulting in serious injury to the fencers. Around 1750, Chuto Nakanishi devised a bamboo practise sword and light practise armour. With the new equipment, fencing could be practised at full speed with only the danger of bruises. By 1780 the equipment had been refined to looked very much as it does today. However the focus of the practice was still more on battlefield technique than philosphy and sport; kenjutsu rather than kendo.

Thanks to Matt Palmer (MSU) and Robert Angeles (Cleveland) for contributing pictures. Thanks to Toronto Kendo dojo's Kimura sensei for having his picture taken with us. Kimura sensei is Mike Murphy's original instructor. Posted by Ron Fox on 8-11-07
Ron Fox, Wendy Chen, and Mathew Palmer travelled to Madison Wisconsin August August 3-5 for the MWKF summer camp. The summer camp was taught by Yamanaka Shigeki sensei, and Saito Shigeki sensei. Both sensei are 8-dan Kyoshi, with Yamanaka sensei the winner of the 2005 All Japan 8-dan Championships. Camp was very instructive and difficult. All had chances to practice with both senseis, as well as opportunities for basic and waza practices. Pictures for the camp are available on the Battle Creek Kendo Club Website Posted by Ron Fox on 12-31-07

What is Kendo?
On the surface it looks like two people beating each other on the head with sticks. Kendo (or the Way of the Sword) is in fact a Japanese Martial Arts form practiced worldwide. It is essentially a form of fencing whose roots derive from the Samurai in Japan. Kendo's modern appearance first began in the 1700s with the introduction of armor (bogu) and bamboo and wooden swords (shinai and bokken, respectively). Kendo is now practiced internationally by children as well as adults as old as 80 years old.
In the modern age, sword fighting has little practical purpose against weapons like the pistol- so Kendo is really more of a form of self-improvement than a practical fighting form- or as the All Japan Kendo Federation (AJKF) puts it, Kendo is "the way of developing the person."
The concept of Kendo is to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the Katana. The purpose of practicing Kendo is: To mold the mind and body,
To cultivate a vigorous spirit,
And through correct and rigid training

Our Club News Practice Information Eastern Kendo Blog ... Iaido Mission Statment Eastern Michigan University strives to live up to the ideals of our teachers past and present, of the All Japan Kendo Federation, and the tenets of the All Japan Budo Federation, which reads in part:
"The object of budo is to cultivate character, enrich the ability to make value judgments, and foster a well-disciplined and capable individual through participation in physical and mental training utilizing martial techniques." Eastern Kendo History The Eastern Michigan University Kendo and Iaido Club was founded by Eric Abbey and Charles Ham in 1997. Eric had attained his ni-dan under Ron Fox of the Michigan State club, and Charles had attained his san-dan in Muso Shinden Ryu iaido while studying in Japan. Currently Eric is yon-dan and instructor for the club.
Since then the club has grown from a handful of folks to - well, a much larger handful of folks, some of whom have attained kyu ranks and dan ranks. The club has continued to be mentored by and enjoy fellowship with MSU kendo and Battle Creek kendo (under Dave Christman). We also have grown closer to the Detroit Kendo Dojo under Yoshiteru Tagawa sensei, from whom we have received much instruction and guidance and to whom we are very grateful. In 2002 we started a sister club at the University of Michigan for those U of M members who were having a hard time making it to EMU, and Yukio Watanabe-sensei of Detroit has been instrumental in developing this half of the club.

NCKF Main Page
Northern California has had a rich history of kendo since the first generation of Japanese settlers came to California beginning in the late 1800's. The Northern California Kendo Federation as it is known today, is the result of efforts by both Japanese Americans and Americans of other ancestry after WWII. Today, the Northern California Kendo Federation is comprised of eleven kendo dojo's located from Salinas to Sacramento, with the majority of the dojo's being located around the San Francisco Bay area. The Northern California Kendo Federation is a non-profit publicly supported organization. All Dojo Shihan (chief Instructors) and instructors donate their time and teach on a purely voluntary basis. Due to this, all affiliate NCKF dojo's charge much less for instruction than comparable commercial martial arts studios. Affiliate NCKF dojos are all led by a ranking Shihan, or head instructor of at least 4th Dan (black belt) or above. Those below 4th Dan are only allowed to be assistant instructors in affiliate dojo's. This enables the NCKF to maintain a level of instruction which is needed to promote kendo with a high degree of integrity.
