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.
