Kendo Multimedia:
A Collection of Kendo Resources

There are many kendo multimedia out there. Unfortunately, there are also many resources that are not very reliable.

Here, I would like to introduce kendo resources including free/not-free books, magazines, videos and DVDs that I think are useful for kendo enthusiasts.

If you know any good kendo resources out there, please suggest them here as well.

If possible, I would like to purchase/rent a product you suggest and place my comment as well.

This is very important for future kendo development. You can use a form below for that.

And also you can leave your comment on each product page.

I want you to leave your honest opinion but without being hostile and rude. Such comments will not be welcome on this website.

And please give more comment than, "It was useful" or "I didn't like it”. Please mention "why" part. So in the previous examples, I would want you to write "how it was useful" and "why you didn't like it".

Thank you!
