patrons


This is a simple Patreon page for people who wish to support the improvement and continued development of the kenshi 24/7 website, which means the writing of more articles and publication of more real-world books.

----- WHY SUPPORT? -----
kenshi 24/7 started way back in 2008 (over a decade ago!), and since then we've posted hundreds of kendo/kendo-related articles as well as a number of publications. The site itself has been run – and will continue to always be – free. Book sales have kept the site running over the past while, but I do want to spend a bit more on the site, particularly to do the following:

  1. Improve the website;
  2. Allow the site to be self-sustaining;
  3. Fund research.
Going into more detail, this means: 
- website costs (domain names, hosting, SSL, etc.);
- the purchasing of books and research material;
- excursions within Japan for research purposes;
- (if anything is leftover) a new shinai now-and-again to help me with my shugyo.

I expect than any potential patrons will already be long-time kenshi 24/7 readers, but if you are new to kenshi 24/7 and have no idea what I'm on about, you can read more about things here

----- BACKGROUND ----- 
Although kenshi 24/7 site was first launched to the public in 2008 it was actually an outgrowth from an earlier private site for friends. That site started when I moved to Japan in July 2003, which was right after competing in the 12th World Kendo Championships. I am still here now.  

2003 may seem like a long time ago, but actually my first initial foray into kendo website development was with the development of the Edinburgh Kendo Club website in around 1994 or 5... which, I am pretty sure, was the first or second kendo website online. After that I rejuvenated and ran the British Kendo Associations website from around 1999-2003.

kenshi 24/7 is the culmination of nearly 25 years of online kendo presence which no other site can even come close to. Here's hoping we can make it to the 1/2 century !!!

Cheers!
