Kendo is a full-contact martial art practiced with/against opponents of all ages, genders, sizes and abilities. Practitioners use a bamboo sword to strike target areas on their armoured opponents in order to simulate real Japanese swordplay. Kendo was used by Samurai to safely teach swordplay where use of a real sword would have been too dangerous.
