STREET KENDO is a name for the transfer of principles and techniques of traditional Japanese warrior arts to modern street defense applications. The central art in many Japanese styles is the use of the sabre or katana.
Many of these tactics can be transferred to canes, sticks or empty hand techniques. Many Japanese empty hand arts are taken directly from fencing and a better understanding comes though the study of Kendo and the sword.
BRIAN WILKES has studied the martial arts since 1967 and has been teaching since 1984. He is best known as the author of over 100 articles on martial arts.
Sensei Wilkes is the student of one of Japan's oldest philosophical ryu. He specializes in Seishi Ryu Sogobudo and is currently training students privately.
