Kendo wasn’t really my thing before, but after shiai and fighting (keiko) with other people, I started to feel the fun in kendo. I want to improve myself to become better and better, I want to win battles, I want to get higher grades. Every time I fight with someone, I am afraid that they might beat me, but when I am actually attacking, I stop thinking about whether they might hit me, or that they might win. I focus on the opportunity in front, like how can I win, or not lose.
I like doing kendo because I can fight and get higher grades, unlike other sports, there are more than 1 way to win the game, that means there is a lot of space for me to try, and different ways suit different opponents. Every time I fight with different people, I have to find different ways to attack, which is very exciting for me because everyone isn’t the same. Also, I like doing kata because it’s like a story, every story/ kata is different, and the ending is different, so even it’s hard to memorize, when you act the story out, you can show people what happens in the kata, and the techniques in there.
REASON ABOVE ARE WHY I LIKE KENDO,WHAT I ENJOY AND HOW IT LINK TO ME
