Kendo Kata 1

Meaning "way of the sword," kendo is a form of Japanese martial arts in which practitioners spar using bamboo swords shinai and protective body armor bogu. Practitioners earn points for successfully striking an opponent in a defined area, and the practitioner with the most points wins. Kata, however, is the basis on which kendo is taught. To put it simply, kata consists of fixed patterns involving attacks and counterattacks. It encompasses more than just basic swordsmanship, however. Kendo kata also requires a thorough understanding of attack intervals, body movement, price and sincerity. Additionally, there are two roles in kendo kata: the student and the teacher.
