Kendo is a vigorous, full-contact Martial Art derived from the original sword training of the Japanese Samurai. Practiced by millions of men, women and children worldwide, Kendo is growing in popularity in North America.

Kendo in English is broken down as follows: Ken (Sword) Do (Way, or Path). So, translated into English, Kendo is "The Way of The Sword".

The Hayakawa Kendo Club is run by Sensei Mark Kawabe, a 5th degree black belt who has trained extensively at various clubs in Canada and Japan over the past 25 years.

Kendo training consists of drills which focus on improving co-ordination, strength, breath control and stamina. Beginning students spend their time honing basic strikes both with and without partners. Advanced students wear bogu (armour) and practice basic and advanced techniques with partners. There is always a session of keiko (free sparring) for advanced students.
