Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #039 - Growing Kendo in Guatemala

Thank you for reading the Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #039.

It's August! If you live in the north hemisphere, you are in the most wonderful kendo season, aren't you? Hot and sweaty even before putting men on. But after training, don't you feel good? And beer (or super cold drink) after training! If that does not keep us in kendo, what does??

In this issue, you will find some updates and an article about the growing way of the sword in Guatemala.

Also please do not forget about Kendo Bogu Shop Review page. This is for you and our future kendo enthusiasts. Also for the future of kendo.

This is an article of Guatemala Kendo Association. I was there in year 2000 as the second kendo volunteer of Japan International Cooperation Agency.

It has been over 10 years since I was a part of Guatemala kendo. Now Guatemalan kendo has grown big. I think they are one of the kendo clubs in the world doing really well.
