It is most definitely not kenjutsu or traditional sword work by any measure. It's called chanbara. It's a very sportified version of sword play. Looks like a lot of fun and excellent exercise, but it is not kenjutsu.

Thanks to you both. Good to hear from a fellow Texan as well! You wouldn't happen to be associated with the DFWKIK that meets at Greenhill would you Mr. Mahan?

Nope. I'm training up in Denton at John Ray's MJER dojo. We are not part of the Kendo Renmei, but rather directly under the MJER soke's organization.

Feel free to drop by and watch a class. The schedule is on the website.
