           Kendo is a traditional culture of Japan.  



   The Philosophy of Kendo’s Forefathers
 
  
The sword reflects the mind. If one’s state of mind is not correct,
  neither is the sword.
  The one who wishes to learn the way of the sword must first learn
   the way of the mind. ”

                     Toranosuke Shimada (1814~1852)

 

 “One who learns the sword should not concern themselves with the
 outcome of the match.
  A pure mind and nourishment of the soul allows for a win within
 oneself.”

                
         Yamaoka Tesshū (1836~1888)

Message from President Takeshi Masago

of the Shinjuku Kendo Federation


 

Shinjuku has, from many years, been an important transportation hub for a huge number of people, and has developed as an office and residential area while retaining its personality and history.

The Shinjuku Kendo Association, while keeping the two foundations of “Diversity” and “Concentration” at its heart is focused on the principle of “Kou Ken Chi Ai”, or Crossing Swords to Know Love.

At Shinjuku Kendo Association, we are working hard to entice more people into Kendo, even if it might be one person at a time. Be you a resident or a worker here, or even someone who only passes through, regardless of your grade, age, sex, experience or race, we are happy to meet you.

Kendo is one of Japan’s traditions, so why not start with us, in the centre of Tokyo, the capital of Japan. We are waiting to practice with you, here at Shinjuku.
