  • What is Kendo World?

    Crossing Swords & Borders
    Kendo World is devoted to Japanese budo (martial arts), and the dissemination of its vast practical, philosophical and historical aspects to the non-Japanese speaking community.


    Although our primary focus is kendo, we also cover iaido, naginata, jodo, jukendo and tankendo, as well as other koryū. In addition to these martial arts, Kendo World also contains articles of cultural and historical significance on various subjects related to budo.

    Kendo World Magazine is a twice yearly (June and December) print and ebook publication packed full of articles on kendo and related budo arts (iaido, jodo, jukendo, naginata, and koryū arts). The magazine was founded in 2001 by the editors Alex Bennett and Hamish Robison. Kendo World Journal is published in Japan by Bunkasha International K.K., which has also started publishing additional works on kendo and other budo arts which you can find in the Amazon Store link above.

    Kendo World Forums are online forums where the international kendo community can interact with each other and the Kendo World Team.

    The articles for Kendo World are written by an international network of experienced martial artists spread across Japan and the world. Translations of articles and books published in Japanese, including our supporters Kendo Nippon and Kendo Jidai magazines, are included in many of our pages. We also accept submissions on related topics, from research to tournament reports. Submission Guidelines

    The Kendo World Team is constantly trying to improve not only the quality of the magazine, but the strength of the international kendo community. We would like to thank you for your interest in Kendo World, and look forward to seeing you in the forums.
