While driving in Minneapolis, I spotted a group of people in a park engaged in the art of Kendo or Korean stick fighting.
They informed me that they were training for an upcoming large tournament that would take place in the twin cities.

this is such an engaging sport to watch

I thought it was from Japan too - could there be different versions, or maybe migrated?

Bill and Flier:
That is what I thought as well.
The leader of the group saw me taking photo's and asked me if I knew what sport this was.
I also replied "Japanese stick fighting"
He corrected me and told me it was Korean.
I did not want to argue...after all they had the sticks:):):):)
