I’m really interested in joining kendo and I’m 16. But I’m a little worried because I’ve had a few sword practices in my childhood and I’ve always had trouble holding it with two hands. Is it allowed for me to use one hand?
Answer: Thank you for your question. Basically, you have to learn how to hold the sword with two hands. As you become advanced, you may be able to learn nito (two sword stance) or jodan. But first, you must learn how to hold the sword with both hands.
Kendo is fun! Kendo is enjoyable! Adults beginners and late starters of kendo have hard time to understand that. If you are one of them, I want to help you with learning kendo and share the enjoyment and joy of kendo!
