Kendo is an unusual combination of physical and mental application. As such, every individual travels on a different journey "up the mountain" and benefits from a different guide book. I found this book's unique combination of personal musings and thoughts from the kendo "greats" a wonderful companion. This is a book to pick up and put down, as each chapter is short but, like an addiction, you will want more than one chapter at a time. A brief look at the 52 chapter headings, indicates that the author has addressed most of the questions that have held up individual kendoka development and added in great insights by people looking down, from nearer the summit, at the path they have traveled. Highly recommended, so I also purchased the kindle version!

While i have read nearly all of these blog articles over the years, the thread of whats being conveyed is sometimes lost or distracted by weekly events. I find having them arranged in such a fluid manner creates a greater sense of what is actually being said and gives a greater picture to the reader, and how to implement them into their own personal kendo. Gets to the meat of the matter :)

These articles are little treasures that you can go back to time and time again. I am especially fond of the essay's on basic posture, seme, tame, grading advice and advice for the more mature student, if only I took it most of the time. My reason for not giving five stars is a reflection of Geof's own attitude to the tradition of transmission, the need foe a degree of humility!

A fantastic book on Kendo as a follower of Sensi Salmon blog for the last couple of years I really enjoy the bringing together of articles that not only impart a lifetimes in site in the art of Kendo but also into Japanese culture with a very witty British touch. A must for any Kendoka

An accessible book that introduces one to the ancient skills and philosophy behind the art of Kendo. helps those participating in Kendo develop new thoughts and skills on the subject. Good value for money and an intriguing book looking into one of the sophisticated and noble martial arts of Japan.
