Thirty years ago, Ron Fox never saw himself as taking over a dying Kendo Club at Michigan State University. Fox studied at MSU and became interested in in the martial art of Kendo during his sophomore year.

Today, Fox is a Kendo world champion. And he is the leader and sensei of the MSU’s growing Kendo club - a decision that he calls one of the best he has ever made.

How he got into Kendo and how he became the leader for the club at Michigan State is a fascinating story that comes full circle.

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- More than 50,000 Michigan State students call East Lansing home, and for each one of them, there is probably something on campus get involved in.

    There are over 30 club sports for MSU students, and one of the oldest, but least attention-seeking, is the Martial Arts discipline of Kendo.

   MSU's Kendo team is competitive, having started this semester by winning the championship at the Case Western Reserve Kendo tournament in Ohio.
