YOUR HOST

Kenshi NAGAMATSU

Hi, I am Kenshi. I started practicing kendo at the age of 5 and has over 25 years of experience. I have been a part of the kendo club since junior high school and continued even after becoming a professional in the workforce. During high school, I was the runner up for Kanagawa Prefecture's High School Kendo Competition! In order to spread kendo to the world, I started my own company called the Kendo Experience Tour (SAMURAI TRIP) in 2016. Now, I am teaching many foreigners about the traditions of the Japanese martial art of kendo.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A real hands on experience to learn what a Samurai is like, through the practice of Japan's martial art, kendo. Of course, you will have the opportunity to wear the kendo armour and uniform. First, you will learn how to properly wear it both. Then, you will learn the kendo manners and etiquette. Once you understand that, you will wield the bamboo sword and learn how to practice swinging. Specifically, how to swing at the "men" (face), "do" (breastplate) and "kote" (hand). You will then watch the teacher's demonstration and participate in a match as well. A great oppportunity to truly experience kendo by wearing the uniform, armour and participate in a match!
