So as long as I learn the reliable basics from somewhere (i.e. the basics link on this website) and continue to practice them, I will be on the right path and will be ready for when can actually attend a dojo? If that is what it takes, then that is where I will start.

Do you have any tips for getting fitted for a kendo top and bottom (hakama)?

Thanks again.

Kendo-Guide.Com: Thanks for your response. I wouldn't say that is all what you need to do before you actually train with a good instructor. Of course, it is very important for you to know the correct basics. That is knowledge.

I am confident to tell you that information I am providing here is very authentic. As long as you understand how the basic movements work, which is explained here, you can obtain the good knowledge.

Now you know all the movements and how they work (knowledge). The next step is to practice exactly as they are explained. This is the hard part.

Many people interpret what they learn into something that they think they should be doing. This is a start of developing bad habits. That is why it is very important to pay attention to details of what your instructor dose.

If you don't have an instructor, you cannot observe what your instructor is doing. Observing and emulating is the quickest and easiest way to learn good basics. Since you don't have one, you really have to pay extra attention to the materials you have.

That is why I have created many videos so people can actually see what's going on in the kendo movements. I tried to break those movements down so it is easy for beginners to grasp kendo movements more easily.

So your job is to follow whatever you decided to follow thoroughly.

About keikogi and hakama. Since kendo shops have their own size measurement just like normal clothes, you should ask kendo shops. When you do that, please consider the sponsors of this site. They are on the top of the right column :)
Hope this helps.
