How was Kendo played?

~ Kendo= Way of the sword
~ Played with a Katana called 'Shinai'
~ Noisier than other sports because the players shout to show fighting spirit.
~ Players train & fight barefooted
~ Modern techniques are strikes and thrusts.
~ Strikes targeted- Wrists, head & body(all
armored)
~ Thrusts-only on throat- sometimes restricted as it can cause injuries -Intan


~ Life was difficult and 'laborious'.
~ Had to train a lot.
~ Some fought with each other until their doom - they did this to defend their country from invaders and for
HONOUR
.
~ Once a fight starts a samurai doesn't take off his armour until the end.
~ Sometimes they wore 40kg Armour's for months.
~ Normally see them in iron armour with a sword, dagger or bow - ready for attack.
~ Samurais were Japan's warrior class for a long time.
~ Their name came from the word '
saburau
' meaning service in Japanese.
~ Samurai emerged as military soldiers - then military rulers.
~ As tradiotional warriors, they were governed by a code of ethics
'bushido'
meaning
'the way of the warrior."

Samurais

~ Kendo was originated from the whole of Japan.
~ Kendo was banned in Japan in 1946. Kendo is a way to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana. To mold the mind and body.
~ Kendo is focused:
To cultivate a vigorous spirit through correct and rigid training.
To strive for improvement in the art of Kendo.
To hold in esteem human courtesy and honor.
To associate with others with sincerity.
And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.
~ Thus will one be able:
To love one's country and society.
To contribute to the development of culture
And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.

Was a samurai's life challenging?
What is the costume worn during Kendo?
~ Katana called a
shinai
. - with bamboo and leather outside.
~ Also use hard wooden swords (
bokutō
) to practice
kata.
~ Protective armour is worn to protect specific parts of the head, arms & body - the head has a helmet with a metal grille and fabric flaps, the arms has long, padded gloves called
kote
, the torso has a brestplate and the rest has a hard shield.
~ Underneath the armour consists of a jacket and a
hakama
, a garment that separates in the middle to form two wide trousers.
~ A cotton towel is wrapped around the head to absorb sweat and to make a comfortable base against the head armour.
