Everyone can enjoy practicing Kendo throughout their lives, irrespective of age or gender.
Feeling the tension and advancing straight ahead are mentally and physically refreshing.
Through rigorous training, you will improve yourself, becoming more polite and kind to others, even to your competitors, as well as to your teammates.
Kendo tournaments are full of moments of serenity before matches, courage that helps us move forward, and harmony between all living things.
We hope the kendo music will reflect this atmosphere. We also expect the music to capture the spirit of kendo.
