Description

Editorial By Alex Bennett With the 16th WKC only a few months away, Alex Bennett ruminates on the behaviour of onlookers at large sporting events both in and out of the budo world-something that was an issue at the 15th WKC in Novara, Italy, in 2012. He outlines ideal behaviour for both spectator and competitors at future competitions. The 62nd All Japan Kendo Championships: A Changing of the Guard? By Michael Ishimatsu-Prime The 62nd AJKC on Monday November 3, 2014, was perhaps the most memorable in recent years. 21-year-old University of Tsukuba third-year student was victorious after a day of shocks and surprises to become the youngest ever AJKC champion.

He serves as an advisor for the West Tokyo Kendo Federation, and is Suruga University Kendo Club Shihan, Musashi Murayama City Kendo Federation president, and leader of the Kinry kan Dojo. "Most of the members are company workers. Along with my own training, I am constantly thinking of how I can help them improve their kendo. In this new series of articles, I will introduce various technical issues that can be addressed for mature kenshi..." Passing 7-dan: Reflections after the Facts By Donatella Castelli "I passed 7-dan. I keep repeating it to myself, because I still fail to understand the consequences. I have been back to keiko, as usual, I and have been teaching and have been taught, so apparently nothing major has happened..." Well, something major did happen. In passing 7-dan, Donatella Castelli became the first European woman to obtain that grade. In this article she reflects on her journey to 7-dan and recounts some good advice that was useful in her success.
