Kendo (way of the sword) is a Japanese sword fighting martial art that was established sometime in the late 18th century. Much of Kendo is taken from Kenjitsu which was a popular way to practice the art of sword fighting amongst Samurai.
The use of bamboo swords and protective armor came about in the late 17th/early 18th century, allowing the practice of full force attacks in many sword fighting martial arts.
Kendo was banned in Japan in 1946, as the government at the time didn’t want fighting or militarialised practice amongst it’s people. However it was eventually reintroduced to the public in 1950 as Shinai Kyougi, but renamed back to Kendo from 1952.
