Thank’s to Emils connections in the noble art of Kendo we got invited to do a photoshoot for IKSU kendo last tuesday. Kendo as a training method for swordfighting has a very long history arriving in the form practiced today somwhere around the midle of the 18th century. At that time a man named Nakanishi Chuta started using bamboo swords and thick gloves to lessen damages during practice, while still allowing full force attacks.

It’s a fast sport and the lighting was far from ideal. Still some of shots came out okay.
