So you want to be a samurai?
Descended from the swordsmanship of the samurai, kendo is a traditional way of fencing using a bamboo sword (shinai). Meaning “way of the sword,” kendo strives to achieve a unity of mind and body through physical and mental coordination. An after-school program begun by the Japan Center, the ASIJ Kendo Team includes students from grades 3 through 9. Utilizing a unique Jedi ranking and testing system, the activity promotes interest in this traditional martial art with a modern twist.
This is Quinn’s story of why she decided to pick up the shinai and follow the way of the sword and how it has given her entry into a world of authentic Japanese culture.
Life at school is full of stories and the narrative of where our vision will take us is told each day through the learning our students experience in the classroom and beyond.
