  • Kendo World - a Cumulative Table of Contents



    Introduction
    When I decided to make a cumulative table of content for the five first volumes of your favorite magazine, I had several things in mind.
    First, I knew that it will help me a lot for my researches. I will finally be able to find quickly an article that has been lost for years in the maze of my memory.
    But, I guess that I am not the only kendoka who can read and who want to improve his general knowledge about the art.
    Since others might also be willing to use the wealth of information disseminated in the 20 issues of Kendo World -that is 2153 pages-, I have decided to print my work.
    I am sure it will be useful to many. At least it should be... It could make the difference in your next 8th dan grading!
    Second, I thought that it would be easy and fast to do. What a nice way to have one more line in my Curriculum Vitae! I was unfortunately wrong about that second point. But, as Confucius said to his disciples: no pain, no gain!
    This general table of context should normally have been followed by an index. In this case, this work would have been easily three times bigger. Therefore, I have decided, for the sake of the Amazonian Forest, not to write it.
    Instead I have classified the articles under general and/or precise categories. In some cases, the same article has been placed under different headings. That should help the reader to find quickly an article of interest.
    In some case, I had to change the original title. My friends from the editorial board having been sometimes without consistency or having simply made typo mistakes.
    Therefore, the first object of this table of content is to allow to find quickly an article. It is NOT a bibliography where the references can just be copied and used elsewhere. In this case, you should always crosscheck my reference with the original title of the article.
    I didn't mention systematically the translator's or the photograph's names. It doesn't mean that I don't respect their work... how could it be? I just choose that option to make the table shorter and clearer. Again, I will ask the reader to go to the original paper to find all these information.
    Here is the structure of this table:

    Editorial ‒ Kyōshi a Go!
    By Alex Bennett

    In terms of international kendo, more progress has been made with regards to the implementation of the FIK shōgō system. Shōgō are those slightly confusing titles renshi, kyōshi and hanshi awarded to people with the highest dan ranks of 6, 7 and 8. Alex Bennett introduces the latest developments in international kendo.

    The Great East Japan Earthquake
    By Michael Ishimatsu-Prime
    At 2.46pm in the afternoon of Friday March 11, 2011, I was sat in the second-floor study of my house in Kawasaki, just a short train ride south of Tokyo. I was trying to finish the long overdue English translation of my kendo senseis book when I felt the house shaking. It was unmistakably an earthquake. This is something that I have felt many times before in my eight years in Japan, and as they are such a common occurrence, you tend to get a bit complacent when they come. Indeed, my first thought was, Its alright, itll be over in a second. However, it was not. It lasted for over five minutes and t...

    Editorial: The Unbridled Arrogance of Kendōka?
    Alex Bennett Ph.D
    Without question, kendo is a fantastic way for developing character. Even the dan grades and shōgō in kendo are based on the premise that by virtue of improving technically, you will also mature as a human being. My point is that we must be wary of some particularly disturbing common misconceptions; you do not improve as a human being just because you do kendo, or just because you have a high grade. It is a simple notion, but one that is not contemplated enough by kendo enthusiasts in and outside Japan.

    In Memoriam: Dr.(Lt. Col.) Gordon Warner, USMC (Ret.)
    Professor Richard Schmidt (University of Nebraska-Lincoln)
    Dr. (Lt. Col.) Gordon Warner, USMC (Ret.), 97, passed away Friday, March 4, 2010, in Okinawa (Yonabaru-chō), Japan, following a brief illness. In the world of modern kendo, Dr. Warner is best known as one of several American and Nikkei kenshi pioneers who played a seminal role in forging strong cross-cultural linkages between Japan and the United States in fostering further the internationalisation of kendo. Professor Richard Schmidt writes about this great mans life and contributions to ke...

    Bushido- Real and Invented
    By Michael Ishimatsu-Prime (M.A.)
    A little under forty years after the Meiji Restoration of 1868, Japan had transformed itself from a country that was vulnerable, isolated, and weak, to arguably the strongest power in the region one that was modernizing and industrializing at an extraordinary rate. Japan also rapidly became a player on the world stage, and its arrival was signified by its victory over Russia, then one of the worlds foremost powers, in the Russo-Japanese War of 19041905. The successes that Japan was experiencing were attributed by some to the teachings and philosophies of bushido, the Way of the Warrior. The purpose of this article is to compare some of the Tokugawa period classics of bushidō literature by Yamaga Sokō, Daidōji Yūzan, and Yamamoto Tsunetomo with accounts of bushidō that were propagated by the likes of Nitobe Inazō, Baron Suyematsu and Okakura Yoshisaburo in the Meiji period. These modern representations of bushidō bear little resemblance to the actual code of the samurai, which was itself an ideal and far from universally practiced. The Meiji interpretations could be called modern inventions desig...
