Do you think the late starters become 8-dan? I mean those who started kendo in their 30s or 40s. My father started kendo when he was 55. He passed away 1 year or even less before he was going for 6-dan. He became 5-dan before me.
I have come to the point that the late starters should practice kendo differently from the traditional ways. I am still in search of new ways.
Do you have any good methods?
