Fun history, well developed, with details. No need to understand, or read, Japanese, which I barely do, but it would help.
A well done volume which goes beyond the basic repetitive kendo books which have been "done before". What a delight that this volume was finally reprinted! Enjoy!
The pictures are clear, and the points of note useful when atempting to refine your practice. Overall a much better (and understandable) coverage of the kata than Ozawa's "Kendo: The definitive guide". The page lay-out includes both shidachi and uchidachi as they enter and exit, though I would have liked to have seen movement arrows (a la Yang, Jwing-Ming). Overall though, this has been a very useful purchace, and I recommend it for anyone interested in learning and refining their kendo kata.
