Kendo-Guide.Com Newsletter, Issue #054 - Some Fun Announcements

Thank you for opening the newsletter.

Kendo calendar 2012

Kendo calendar 2012

I hope this email find you well.

I am so sorry for not emailing you as much as I wanted to. Between the end of August and the mid-September, I was super busy but in a good way!

We had a seminar in Indiana with my sensei, Miyazaki sensei, and Alex Bennett sensei (Kendo World Chief Editor).

Prior to the seminar, I asked them to explain kendo as a budo. This simple explanation is good enough for them to go over a lot of stuff!

I am sure that many participants learned a lot not only the actual movements but also the reasons behind the kendo movements.

We had 2 days but we ran out of time on both days. It was so deep. Now I have to finish editing the video!!!

I have three announcements.

1. Kendo Calendar 2012
2. Bonus Videos For Kendo Guide For Beginners eBook
3. New videos on Youtube

Kendo Calendar 2012

One of my kendo friends, Okazaki sensei, designed 2012 kendo calendar.

He is an architect and artist. The calendar will have 7 beautiful kendo watercolor paintings (printed for the calendar). Order quickly because first 70 people will get some bonus! And it is limited number and time offer. For more detail, please click the link below.

Bonus Videos For Kendo Guide For Beginners eBook

Recently I added some bonus videos for Kendo Guide For Beginners eBook.

Since I really think the beginning of kendo is a very important phase, I wanted to add some bonus to help beginners. If you havenít, check it out!

New Videos on Youtube

On youtube you can have some new videos too. One of them is how to train your left wrist. Hope you like it!

Thank you!
