weird martial arts class?

by admin on December 11, 2009

so at my body attack class the other half of the gyms is shared bya kids karate class and this other weird martial arts class. they wear odd blue really skirts (and they are mostly men) and as they stretch they stand in a big circle and go HUH!HUH!HUH! etc. then they use these big wooden sticks by the look of it hold then over their head and bring them down infront of them repeatedly, again making odd noises. then they go into pairs put on wierd helmet/mask type things and proceed to take turns in hitting each other on the head with the big stick whilst making odd noises. can someone please tell me what this is? its driving me mad, not knowing! :)

its called Kendo
