Zanjutsu (斬術, Swordsmanship; Viz "Art of the Sword"; ; Cutting Technique) is the fighting style for the Zanpakutō, (i.e. sword fighting) and is one of the four basic fighting styles of the Shinigami. It is shameful for a Shinigami not to master at least this technique. It is the specialty of Captain Kenpachi Zaraki of the 11th Division.
Kendō (剣道, Kendo; ; ; "Way of The Sword") is a modern Japanese martial art of sword-fighting based on traditional samurai swordsmanship.
