Info about "Kendo shiai video"
Kendo shiai is the Kendo competition. There are usually three referees (shinpan). Each referee holds a red flag and a white flag in opposing hands. To award a point, a referee raises the flag corresponding to the colour of the ribbon worn by the scoring competitor. Usually at least two referees must agree for a point to be awarded. The match continues until a pronouncement of the point that has been scored.
Kendo competitions are usually a three point match. The first competitor to score two points, therefore wins the match. If the time limit is reached and only one competitor has a point, that competitor wins.
In the case of a tie, there are several options:
Hiki-wake: The match is declared a draw.
Enchō: The match is continued until either competitor scores a point.
Hantei: The victor is decided by the referees. The three referees vote for victor by each raising one of their respective flags simultaneously.
