Kendo (Japanese fencing) is a martial art which was created as training procedure for the handling of the épée in combats. The épée is substituted by a copy of bamboo (shinaí). Nowadays it is practised as a sports modality.

The basic movement of the Kendo calls for the use of the personal skill in the techniques to adequate them to the opponent, one of the biggest virtues of this sport is that physical strength, height, weight, age or sex is not important to touch the opponent with your épée or being touched.

In order to get started, the sports service is provided with basic equipment (shinaí).
