Modified Nishumura KENDO HIIT Session with music from DRUM TAO


During the lockdown period, we had to find creative ways in which to stay physically fit, as well as still maintain our various Kendo skills.


There were a few High Intensity Interval Training videos which combined the HITT method with Kendo moves! These proved to work well with our members and we have continued to use and adapt the workout as part of our regular workout!


This "Modified Nishumura KENDO HIIT Session" is the latest variation of our workout. An important point to note is that this workout is NOT a time based HIIT, which would normally be a 20 second workout followed by 10 seconds of rest. Instead, this is a CONTINUEOUS SESSION that requires the participant to do all 10 exercises in one go! Because fitness levels of people do vary, we have allowed for intermittent breaks to allow one to catch one's breath back. But, these break should be kept short and as infrequent as possible.


It is important to note that the participant must maintain good form and technique. This shoudl NOT be sacrifised for speed and/or power)



The Modified Nishumura KENDO HIIT Session consist of the following 10 sections:


1. 20x men cuts

2. 10x footwork circles (clockwise)

3. 20x men cuts while balancing on one leg

4. 10x footwork circles (anti-clockwise)

5. 20x men cuts while balancing one other leg

6. 20x footwork going backwards and forwards

7. 20x men cuts with squats

8. 20x footwork going side to side

9. 20x men cuts in sit-up position (use tengui to make it easier)

10. 20x haya subui
