The author uses lessons learned from a long career of teaching martial arts and academic subjects to impart clearly and concisely the fundamentals of kendo and the martial way.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;With explanatory line drawings by Kathleen Sweeney illustrating significant points of discussion, kendo katas, a handy glossary of kendo terminology and related concepts, and an unusually helpful bibliography, andlt;iandgt;Complete Kendoandlt;/iandgt; is an essential volume for every kendoka's personal library.
