Requirements for kendo
Do you have to have been doing a martial art to start doing kendo?
Not at all. It does not matter if you have experience in other martial arts or not, kendo
can be learned by anyone.
Many people with long experience in other martial arts find kendo
very hard to learn. They have already established habits from their martial arts and those habits tend to slow down their learning process of kendo
Of course, there is a bright side. They can use their experience of other martial arts in kendo
. By looking for similarities between kendo
and their martial arts, they can learn kendo
more quickly than others.
Hope this helps.
