Anytime.

Is it true that striking style is different between kenjutsu and kendo?
For a score of reasons, yes. However, GOOD kendo teacher will know this and the training will (at some point) allow you to experience both. If you can, try to find a dojo that teaches the kendo no kata and some iaido.

am not sure how it is in kendo, but I worry that shiai conditions would produce a similar effect.
Maybe. Probably. Possibly. Being aware of the shortcoming is half the battle to fixing it, neh?

At worst, it'll be lots of fun!
