a question
by: lee

Hi there!!!

I've had read some of these articles and I'm actually surprised that there that many kendo styles… I know that you have mentioned that you know a limited amount of other organizations outside the KIF. Can you please name the ones you can think of ??? And please tell me the differences you can think of….. I really appreciate it!!!If you can’t can you at least recommend me a website??

And another question how can you get invited to practice in another country??? And most of the foreigners that go to Japan to train do they go more to those who teach in Japanese or in English.

Because from a previous post you have mentioned that it’s not mandatory to learn Japanese in kendo.


take care

Kendo-Guide.Com: I know there are kendo kyokai and Dai Nippon Butoku Kai but since I have never met anyone or seen their kendo, I cannot say the differences.

Not sure what you mean by “get invited to practice” but if you want to practice at a dojo that you do not belong to, you must talk to them first and ask permission.

If you want to practice kendo in Japan, you need to understand Japanese. Of course, if you are in an English speaking country, you do not really need to know Japanese but only kendo terms.

Hope this helps.
