 Kendo: Elements

All students of kendo - the formal art and practice of Japanese swordsmanship - will welcome this manual by an advanced practitioner with a deep understanding of the martial art. The elements of Kendo philosophy, which can mystify even experienced practitioners, are explained in simple terms to aid understanding. The manual includes biographies of Japan's most celebrated swordsmen, an extensive glossary of kendo terms, and a history of kendo in Hawai'i where it has been practiced for more than a century and where some of the world's top practitioners can be found.
