Game in Brief:
Kendo is one of the simplest forms of martial sport. It has kept the traditional samurai spirit alive. The participants try to attack each other with bamboo swords on the head, chest or hand. The protective gear resembles the samurai’s gear.
- The main aim of the game is not to defeat your opponent, but also to train the mind. While there is no killing in this game, the attitude is “kill or get killed”. This should be the attitude of a go-getter. There should be no excuses whatsoever.
- People practice Kendo for years together. Unlike other sports where there is retirement at various ages, people practice it until they die. This is akin to saying that perfection is a myth. Have a goal in life, keep trying to achieve it and once achieved, set a higher goal.
