Kendo (剣道, Kendō), or "way of the sword", is the martial art of Japanese fencing. Kendo developed from traditional techniques of Japanese swordsmanship known as kenjutsu. The Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, was established in 1895 to solidify, promote, and standardise all martial disciplines and systems in Japan. The DNBK changed the name of Gekiken (Kyūjitai: 擊劍; Shinjitai: 撃剣, "hitting sword") to kendo in 1920.

In 1975 the All Japan Kendo Federation (AJKF) developed an explanation of the concept and purpose of studying kendo.

The Concept of Kendo is to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana (sword).

The Purpose of practicing Kendo is:

To mold the mind and body.
To cultivate a vigorous spirit,
And 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.
This will make one be able:
To love his/her country and society.
To contribute to the development of culture
And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples.Kendo is a physically and mentally challenging activity that combines strong martial arts values with sporting-like physical elements. Kendo embodies the essence of Japanese fighting arts. Practitioners of kendo are called kendoka (one who practices kendo) or kenshi (swordsman). The latter may also be applied to practitioners of other traditional Japanese sword arts. Around eight million people world-wide practice kendo with approximately seven million in Japan.


Equipment and clothing

Single and double shinai kendoka in a matchKendo is practiced using a shinai as a weapon. One, or more rarely two shinai, are used. The shinai is the practice "sword" and is made up of four staves, which are held together by leather fittings. Kendoka also use bokken/bokuto (wooden swords) to practice more formal, set forms known as kata. Protective armour (bogu), is worn, to protect specified target areas on the head, arms and body. The clothing, worn under the bogu comprises a jacket, or kendogi/keikogi and a hakama, which is a trouser-like garment with wide legs.


History
Since the earliest samurai government in Japan, during the Kamakura period (1185-1233), sword fencing, together with horse riding and archery, were the main martial pursuits of the military clans. In this period kendo' developed under the strong influence of Zen Buddhism. The samurai could equate the disregard for his own life in the heat of battle, which was considered necessary for victory in individual combat, to the Buddhist concept of the illusory nature of the distinction between life and death.

swordsmen established schools of kendo training which continued for centuries, and which form the basis of kendo practice today. The names of the schools reflect the essence of the originator’s enlightenment. Thus the Ittō-Ryu (Single sword school) indicates the founder’s illumination that all possible cuts with the sword emanate from and are contained in one original essential cut. The Mutō (swordless school) expresses the comprehension of the originator Yamaoka Tesshu, that "There is no sword outside the mind". The 'Munen Musō-ryū’ (No Intent, no preconception) similarly expresses the understanding that the essence of kendo transcends the reflective thought process. The formal kendo exercises known as kata, were developed several centuries ago and are still studied today.

The introduction of bamboo practice swords (shinai) and armour (bogu) to kendo training is attributed to Naganuma Sirozaemon Kunisato (長沼四郎左衛門国郷 1688-1767). This is believed to be the foundation of modern kendo. Kendo began to make its modern appearance during the late 18th century. Use of the shinai and armour (bogu) made possible the full force delivery of strikes and thrusts without inflicting injury on the opponent. These advances, along with practice formats, set the foundations of modern kendo.

Concepts such as mushin, or "empty mind" as professed by exponents of Zen, are an essential attainment for high level kendo. Fudoshin, or "unmoving mind", is a conceptual attribute of the deity Fudo Myo-O, one of the five "Kings of Light" of Shingon Buddhism. Fudoshin, implies that the kendoka cannot be led astray by delusions of anger, doubt, fear, or surprise arising from the opponent’s actions. Thus today it is possible to embark on a similar quest for spiritual enlightenment as followed by the samurai of old.

Look man, I know very well what it means pain when you broke your bones or fall of your BMX and get a really nasty blooded hand, so I know that I'm talking. There are no limits for me, I love challenges and danger.
BTW: I studied Kung-Fu 2 years so martial arts are not a new thing for me.

Wow... Kung-Fu...
I studied it for 5-6 months, the quitted. Too much philosophy.
No offence, but when some body tells you that you cannot hit your opponent in the balls when he is making some technique on you, I say that this art sucks.
It can be good in potential. For example when you fight another martial artist, cause you follow the "etiquette" - you won't hit the balls, you won't bite, scratch, poke fingers in your opponents eyes...
But on the street - there are no rules...

Yea Muay Thai does rule, i've seen a fight betwen a TaeKwonDo champ with a Muay Thai champ, lol like Psyho said Muay Thai has no rules compared to Taekwondo so he kicked that guys ass and broke his leg wich in Taekwondo isn't allowed to do knee-kicks, to hit the leg with a low-kick and so on, shoulder smashes and you can't take a opponent by the leg like in Muay Thai
Yep its like a street-fighter VS a restricted by rules maritial arts user.

I studied Win-Chung Kung-Fu so there wasn't no rules about not hitting in the ballz, actually there was some technique combinations with a leg low hit in the ballz but we didn't practice a real hit without protection, and yeah there was quite much philosophy: concentration and shit...
