Kenjutsu: “The god of the sword”

Posted on 30 July 2009 by Tony Hackerott


Unlike iaido, kenjutsu utilizes the “katana” (long sword), with a “bokken,” a wooden sword of similar size and weight, used in training.  Kenjutsu is a general name for a variety of the traditional school of lethal Japanese swordsmanship.  It’s beginning came from Japan’s feudal class known as the Samurai.  It is essentially a noncompetitive, demonstrative, performance art, which takes on the form of prearranged set movements between dueling opponents.  Over time, Kenjutsu developed into the art of Kendo.
