Pool Noodles: 'How do you use yours?'

We thought we would share one of the many interesting uses our customers find for the humble pool noodle. If you thought these cylinders of polyethylene foam were only useful when learning to swim then think again!

Kendo meaning "Way of the Sword" is a modern Japanese martial art of sword-fighting based on traditional Japanese swordsmanship, or kenjutsu. Wooden swords are used as inexpensive subsitutes in training, but can cause injury when the protective competition armour seen below is not being worn. Our customer has found that pool noodles are the perfect shape and material to pad the wooden swords thus minimising any training injuries!
