Inoue-sensei: The Difference Between Ippon and Yukodatotsu (Video)

Produced by Graham Sayer, President of New Zealand Kendo Federation (NZKF)

Inoue Sensei  has a close relationship with the Auckland Kendo Club and New Zealand Kendo in general , he has visited us over 12 times in the last 15 years .  He is such a great communicator. His knowledge of all things Kendo is well known both in Japan and in many countries through out the world .

The Sensei is 84 year old this year (2014) and is still present  at every Keiko at the Chion Kenshu Kan dojo here in Yaizu City , Shizuoka.

I am hoping this series of Videos will assist Kenshi everywhere and give them a rare chance to hear the opinions and wisdom of an extremely experienced Kendo teacher .

The Sensei has written many books in his time and one has been translated and published by Alex Bennett and the Kendo World Team . If you have a chance and want to understand deeply the meaning behind the Nihon Kendo Kata then read Kendo Kata: Essence and Application

I hope to produce over time a number of these video with material I am collecting during my time in Yaizu . I have had the pleasure of learning Kendo for the last 22 years or my 33 year Kendo career under the guidance of Inoue Sensei . Even though most of my time is spent in Japan these days my home dojo is The Auckland Kendo Club.

    Sorry for being too direct. It is your moral duty to preserve and spread such wisdom Mr Sayer.
