Kendo – Why & The Experience So Far

The Why

“Kendo is the disciplining of the human character through the principles and application of the katana. ”

When Ben Sheppard Sensei spoke these words when I first started kendo in 2002 at the Melbourne University Kendo Club (MUKEN), I knew I was in for the long haul.

The Experience So Far

As I write this I’m yondan and working my way towards my godan. This blog is inspired by my journey through kendo, especially now as I find my development of kendo lies in the development of kendo in others.
