Kendo Footwork Training

In Kendo, there are various situations such as going forwards and backwards, left and right, taiatari, hikiwaza, intermediate distance, far distance and close distance. Therefore, it is necessary to be able to move smoothly to create opportunities for effective strikes without disturbing your posture.
By practicing different types of footwork, you can create a foundation for these situations and apply it to your kendo. In this seminar, we conducted footwork training as a warm-up. Below is the exercise schedule and detailed videos.
