Watch Kendo Swordsmen Spar With Toy Lightsabers

05.20.15 4 years ago 2 Comments

Kendo has its roots in kenjutsu, the art of fighting with a katana, and sprung from the practice swords and techniques developed over centuries to teach sword fighters how to take down an opponent. It is thus an ancient and dignified art. Even when you throw toy lightsabers into the mix. Yes, the ones with sound effects.

Posted by YouTuber Razziajazzy, the video is great not least because the lightsabers and the lighting are the only changes; it’s still a kendo fight, complete with armor, footwork, and using a toy lightsaber as an actual weapon. Really, the only thing missing here is the Duel of the Fates. But that’s what TubeDubber is for.
