This documentary explores the exciting world of Kendo. Kendo is perhaps the most interesting of the Japanese martial arts. It is the study and practice of samurai swordsmanship. However far from being an ancient or antiquated pursuit, modern Kendo is a lightening fast, FULL contact, combat sport. In Japan Kendo is taught as part of the school's curriculum and is practiced by men and women of all ages. However here in Britain Kendo is devoutly practiced by less than a thousand individuals from diverse backgrounds. It is these brave and dedicated martial artists who will bring the grueling story of the British National Kendo Squad's preparations for the World Championships to the screen. This is the World Championships hosted by the British and heldin Glasgow, Scotland. This film had exclusive access to the British Squad and exclusive footage of the World Championships, and tells a human story of a handful of Western athletes who have chosen an innately Eastern path to follow in life.
