I have a copy of the Official Guide for Kendo Instruction which includes a glossary of terms in chapter 11. Can anyone direct me to a listening resource which will help me pronounce the words accurately?
Answer: Thank you for your post. I am not sure if there are such resources around. I have some audios of kendo terminology page.
I think you are asking this because you do not have anyone who can pronounce those terms for you, so probably the best way is to find videos at youtube and you can actually hear pronunciations of the terms. It is a hard task but it is the best way if you don’t have anyone to help you out with this matter.
Do you think the late starters become 8-dan? I mean those who started kendo in their 30s or 40s. My father started kendo when he was 55. He passed away 1 year or even less before he was going for 6-da…
