Now that Kendo World is hitting the social media scene through Facebook and Youtube, we figured it was about time we started bringing some of our content to a wider range of kendo enthusiasts. As everyone knows, each kendo sensei has different teaching methods, but it is the variation of approaches that allows us to better understand kendo overall. We thought we could help out by giving our perspective on kendo basics for practitioners of all levels.
The result is our new Youtube series called ‘Tip of the Week’. We have had quite a bit of fun making the first group of segments, and have tried to keep it as informal and accessible as possible. We plan for the series to follow a logical order starting from the absolute basics of how to sit down in seiza, and it will eventually cover a wide range of kendo ideas and techniques. The introduction for our upcoming videos can be seen below, along with a couple of photos that were taken behind the scenes. The two women in the videos are Shawnee and Jacqui, and they have been learning kendo for around six months at Kansai University. Alex Bennett is offering the instruction, and Taylor Winter is manning the camera.
So for those interested, jump over to our Youtube channel and subscribe. The best way to keep up to date with our Youtube videos will also be through our Facebook account, so liking the page will be the best way to keep up to date with our series, as well as get hold of some of our media which doesn’t make it onto our Homepage (photos etc.).
