Fencing and stickfight with foam-padded weapons.
Similar to Gekken (the ancestor of Kendo) It allows a wide range of techniques.
Unlike modern kendo, Yoseikan Kenjutsu allows to hit below the waist with your weapon, while performing foot sweeps and grappling, or striking with legs and the free hand/s during sparring. It's a kind of MMA with padded weapons.
Sportive sparring with weapons dramatically improves our timing, coordination, decision-making skills and explosivity. At the same time, it's a very fun and safe way to test techniques from our traditional weapons class (Kobudo) and Iaido (Japanese sword).
