Kendo is Bullshido with its semantics and pedagogy, and I'll explain why

I think the style vs style stuff can be fun if done with the right attitude. There’s a korean couple that do a lot of them, they just try to have a laugh and learn something. You might enjoy their kendo vs judo video.

I say bring grappling back to Kendo, man.

Gekken if my memory is correct

Look for the non-shinai player !

I remember that one, must have been posted over on the old forums too.

I’ve read a “history” of the transition from kenjutsu to koryu kendo to modern Kendo. And it wasn’t Draeger, but I’ve read that one too.
Fascinating stuff !

I’m glad you are here. It’s good to have your expertise and experience.

The posts you did on kote waza were really good.

Might have been Alex Bennett you read, Ben. He’s been doing a lot of work in that area.

It’s an old book. I think it’s in a box in my garage. Maybe…

We can’t use post footers like we did in the old forum, can we? This would make a nice one.

There’s an app for that. I had it on the beta version of these new forums, but nobody has yet requested signature blocks, so I didn’t install it, here. If there’s enough demand, I’ll put it in.
