The art of Japanese swordsmanship is one of the oldest and most well-respected martial arts in Japan. If you're ready for a serious challenge and hardcore workout, stop by your local club and give it a try!
Showing up to a dojo unexpectedly is considered rude, so please be sure to make contact with the dojo beforehand. The kendo community is quite tight-knit, so finding a teacher or someone in the community that can hook you up is a quick and easy way to get started.
