Shoken Teruya, General Director, Naha Tug-of-War Association and his students Hikaru and Shinryou stopped by Torii Gym July 30 to demonstrate the concept of Kendo, which is to discipline the human character through the application of the Shinai sword, according to the All Japan Kendo Federation website. Kendo, much like the ‪#‎ArmyValues‬, seeks to hold in esteem human courtesy and honor, forever pursue the cultivation of oneself, to love one's country and contribute to society in a positive way.
