I wanna try it.. my brother used to do it.. lol there are 2 types btw.. Kendo and Gumdo (Kendo's japanese and Gumdo's korean) the basic difference is that kendo's more sparring.. and gumdo's more into forms and real sword techniques. hehe


Theres also Kumdo which is also korean and they focus more on sparring compared to Gumdo as forms and using actual swords.


yea in korean sword fighting we used both bamboo and wood swords with thin cushioning (the cushioning still hurt like hell XD

I used to rely on physical abilities to defeat my opponent. Only after years of training in kendo and other martial arts, I begin to understand the spirituality in it. Physical aggressiveness has little or nothing to do with fighting spirit.

I use nito as well. Anyone else into nito?

I have a friend who's in kendo.

It's not for me. I'd rather fight with metal swords. XD Haha.

My grandfather was a kendo champion...he makes me spar with no armor...and I have to use a weighted Bokuto (not a shinai Bokurtos are freaking heavy). Kendo hurts. But Jian (chinese sword fighting) hurts more...

stupid asian parents T___T

Akido is a better choice, you can't defend yourself all the time carrying a bamboo sword which weights 1kg against groups of punks that never learns.

I think the bigger question here is...why the hell are people trying to fight with a bamboo stick in the first place!?
