   schema:reviewBody ""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 work begins with a history of kendo in Japan, followed by a study of basic equipment and its proper care and use and a detailed description of forms and rules - essential aspects of any martial art. Beginners will find this section particularly helpful because of the close attention paid to fundamental techniques of kendo, including the rare two-sword form (nito ryu), largely unknown outside of Japan. Each technique is accompanied by clear, easy-to-follow illustrations. The Nihon Kendo Kata and shiai and Shinpan rules and regulations are useful references for those learning the kata and participating in matches. The author, who is also a practicing physician, is attentive throughout to injury prevention and safety concerns - often overlooked in martial arts manuals." "The elements of kendo philosophy, which can mystify even experienced practitioners, are explained in simple terms to aid understanding. The manual concludes with 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 can be found some of the world's top practitioners."--BOOK JACKET." ;
