Originally founded in 1984, for over 30 years, our dojo has been practicing the arts of Kendo and Iaido under the instruction of Kato-sensei
In Japanese, the word kendo literally translated means "way of the sword" ("ken" = sword, and "do" = the way). It is the traditional Japanese art of full-contact fencing developed by the Samurai.
Iaido is the martial art of drawing and cutting with a katana - either an unsharpened practice blade or the real thing. In iaido, a practitioner executes set forms, or kata, against an imaginary opponent.
Non-bogu basic class for Shidogakuin's Harrison dojo will be cancelled for Tuesday, June 3rd and Tuesday, June 11th.
