Kendo for LIFE

Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #041 - Interview with Alex Bennett

Thank you for reading the Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #041.

I have a good news for kendo freaks!

If you are one or more of those people listed below, you are so lucky!

- You are going for a dan exam soon - You are wondering how you should train - You are thinking you are too old for kendo - How you should improve your kendo for your life

I finally completed a video called,

"Interview with Alex Bennett"

In case you don't know who Alex Bennett is…

He is a New Zealander. He is Chief-Editor of Kendo World Magazine. He passed his 7-dan exam at his first attempt.

There are many non-Japanese 7-dan but there aren't many who passed 7-dan for their first attempt. Even for Japanese people, it is very hard to do.

But he did it.

I have known him for almost 20 years now.

When we talk, we usually end up with talking about kendo with tons of beer cans/glasses.

But this time, without any beers, I interviewed him!

I asked what I wanted to ask him but it turned out it is beneficial for every one of us, kendo freaks.

It is priceless to me. I really am lucky to hear the story through this interview. And now I have it recorded.

We can watch this valuable lesson over and over.

To me this is super beneficial and priceless. But since I don't know how you see this video, I set the price very low for the limited time.

Grab your copy now. I will ask you to participate in a survey after your purchase.

Hope you see this video as valuable as I really feel. And of course, enjoy it!
