4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not the best, 3 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Kendo: Elements, Rules and Philosophy (A Latitude 20 Book) (Paperback)
As well as this book, I own two other books on kendo "Kendo: the definitive guide" and "AT look at far mountain". This book is written in clear language, and explains the basic concepts well, but the weakness is that, the techniques are sometimes too abstract. The footworks in waza (or techniques) are not explained. For this purpose, I recommend "The definitive quide".

This book however covers nitto-ryu, which is unique. But it's mostly for curiosity as for beginners, it's not so useful. Another unique section is the personages of some kendo masters. It's good if you want to know more the historical development of kendo.

If I were to choose one between this book and "the definitive guide", I would perhaps choose "the definitive guide", as it explains more systematically.
