Instructions for 1-3 Dan Applicants: Filming is Done

Thanks to George Wu from Ken Wa Kan, I have filmed videos including kata for those who are going to 1-dan, 2-dan and 3-dan exams. 

Enjoy! Kendo is Fun

I want you to enjoy your kendo for life. That is the foundation. I used the criteria to pass 1, 2 and 3-dan as milestones for your kendo to improve

In thee videos, I am sharing my experiences, knowledge and methods as an instructor, kendo learner and a judge for exams. 

Now you know what you must achieve for each grade. In your daily training, you know what you need to focus on.

Not Only Videos

I will make sure to make a written form of instructions. So you get the points you need to work on quickly and which video you should be watching. But with your help, this project and content will be improved. 

Who Will Get What?

  • All the members in each membership (bronze, pearl, gold and platinum) will have access to streaming videos and pdf files in March 2019.  From April 1, 2019, pearl membership and up will have the streaming videos and pdf files. Bronze members will only get access to the streaming videos of the project (I will prepare this after the project is over).
  • Will be on YouTube? Sure! But I am not sure when and I will select what will be on YouTube. I cannot guarantee anything for what will happen in the future.
  • Kendo For Life Club members (Gold and Platinum members) will have access to everything without time restriction and be able to download all the videos. 

If you are not a member yet, please consider to become one at any membership level especially for this project. Your participation will help me to improve this project. And more financial aids will help me to invest time and money into kendo resources so I can share them with you.
