Kendo for LIFE

Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #012 - Updates Since the Last Issue

Thank you for reading the Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #012.

This issue is to update you on what has been going on in the Kendo-Guide.Com website. I am so excited to tell you that I had the first review on Kendo Guide for Beginners! Thank you!!

There is a very interesting question about "distances in kendo". This question made me think about the distances because I never thought about the definitions of the distances before.

Also there are finally new articles! I meant to write these articles a long time ago. These articles are about kendo kata. Hope you like these articles.

In the next issue, I will talk about how the Japanese kendo world is now concerning about shiai (matches). Now they are trying to change shiai rules in university, high school and junior high school tournaments. I would like to talk about it a little bit in the next issue.

Now enjoy the updates!


I have several e-mails that I sent came back due to the wrong e-mail address or someone else.

If you don't hear from me within three or four days, it is quite likely that you mistyped your e-mail address or your e-mail software/Internet server reject e-mails from me. Please make sure to whitelist Kendo-Guide.Com.

I was so happy to find this website. It was an accident. I was web-surfing All Japan Kendo Federation website (Japanese) and WOW!

I saw the words saying "Update in Youtube". What??

They have official youtube channel. They've had this channel since April, 2008. Man, why didn't I know that?

I don't tell you much anymore since they explain things in English. Enjoy non-piracy videos!
