Kendo Lesson: How to Sit, Bow and Stand Up in Kendo

Sitting Bowing and Standing in Kendo This kendo lesson is to share how to sit, bow and stand up from seiza in kendo. This is a video clip from my instruction to a beginner the other day.

Since I am instructing a beginner, it is more detailed so I hope this can help you too.

The beginner is using a bokuto so there are some confusing parts but please read below for more detail.

Here are Some Points

  • Since this beginner is using a bokuto (wooden sword), I am using my right hand to show what to do with his sword.
  • When sitting down, make sure you lift your sword up to your hipbone so you can protect your sword hitting the floor.
  • We usually line up so when sitting down and getting up, be careful with breaking the line.

Compare this with the video, “How to Sit in Kendo“.
