Mr Keen, IT teacher and kendo master, hosted a talk on kendo this week, enthralling a packed library with key information about the many different swords used, as well as the history of kendo. He also explained that kendo was once not just a sport, but a way of life in Japan in the late 1800s.
The highlight of the talk was when he brought out his katana, an extremely sharp curved sword used in kendo. One lucky student even got to hold it! Overall, the talk was very interesting and very good to hear.
