I’ve decided that my sports photos are going by the name of SPORTSHOTZ. I’ll create a website specialising in sports photography as it has become such a large part of what I am doing at this point in time. I just love Kendo – and opportunity to put on some cool armour, whack your opponent with a big bamboo stick and yell your heart out. Some shots from the competition, trying to capture the emotion and energy.
Students from University of Kent Kendo Club also took part.
In preparation for wearing the armour, a tenagui, a cotton scarf to soak up sweat is wrapped around the head. Its quite an art to get it to stay put without slipping down over your eyes while you battle.
