Ishihara sensei (Hanshi 9-dan) from Okayama Prefecture finds a beautiful opening for men against his opponent (from the 9-dan competition, Kyoto Taikai) #japan #budo #kendo #waza #menuchi

Kendo. I appreciate the skill but those uniforms they wear seem cumbersome. I'll stick to Kung Fu.

"This is a kata but an old one. It used to be called Dai Nippon Teikoku Kendo Kata. Uchitachi (The person with a longer sword) is Sasaburo Takano sensei. Shidachi (the person with a short sword) is Hakudo Nakayama sensei. That looks like No.1 of Kodachi. Takano sensei's men strike is really beautiful."

Kendo takes dedication, ferocity, and an absolute sense of inner peace and serenity that can only be found in a martial art.
