The book also gives some example of real match situations, how one can spot an opening etc.
However, I strongly recommend that the book be read along side training under a teacher. The pictures only made sense to me since I have been practicing at a dojo and my teacher has been explaining these things as well.
After reading this book I’m thinking maybe I should go back down to the local class and have a look at taking it up again. The book presents not just basic techniques like many books out there but an inspiring insight into the history and the philosophy regarding Kendo. Definitely a good ne for all people doing Japanese martial arts as the teachings in this book will cross over into whatever you’re doing.
