Jinichi Tokeshi's book is a great supplement to the modern kendoka. However, I would recommend getting Kendo: The Definitive Guide by Hiroshi Ozawa since Kendo: Elements, Rules, and Philosophy is not as thorough with its waza and keiko.

Jinichi Tokeshi's book is a great supplement to the modern kendoka. This book has concise and understandable vocabulary, making it easy for many people to read. It simplifies most of the concepts in the book.

All students of kendo--the formal art and practice of Japanese swordsmanship--will welcome this manual by an advanced practitioner with a deep understanding of the martial art. The work begins with a history of kendo in Japan, followed by a study of basic equipment and its proper care and use and a detailed description of forms and rules--essential aspects of any martial art. Beginners will find this section particularly helpful because of the close attention paid to fundamental techniques of kendo, including the rare two-sword form (nitô ryû), largely unknown outside of Japan. Each technique is accompanied by clear, easy-to-follow illustrations. The Nihon Kendo Kata and Shiai and Shinpan rules and regulations are useful references for those learning the Kata and participating in matches. The author, who is also a practicing physician, is attentive throughout to injury prevention and safety--concerns often overlooked in martial arts manuals.

This book is comprehensive in that it touches on every aspect of Kendo, but some chapters consist of only a paragraph. I'm still fairly new to Kendo, so I was looking for more detail in the fundamentals. The book feels a bit scant in this regard, but appears to have more helpful information on maintaining equipment and developing technique.

Still In middle of reading it, its very all encompassing for the beginner looking to get into kendo, the section on proper maintenance of practice equipment is very useful. Not an advanced or intermediate manual. Great for the fundamentals.

Jinichi Tokeshi's book is a great supplement to the modern kendoka. However, I would recommend getting Kendo: The Definitive Guide by Hiroshi Ozawa since Kendo: Elements, Rules, and Philosophy is not as thorough with its waza and keiko.

This book has concise and understandable vocabulary, making it easy for many people to read. It simplifies most of the concepts in the book. Tokeshi-sensei starts off with the history of kendo, which was rather segmented. He then proceeds to introduce the equipment necessary for kendo: the shinai, gi, hakama and bogu. For each equipment, illustrations are provided on how to maintain them or wear them.

The waza and keiko in this book are explained in paragraphs, only giving the reader an overview. There are illustrations in many waza and keiko that can help one reference back. Tokeshi-sensei also provides some insight and tips on waza.

Just like the rest of the book's contents, the philosophy was concise. He cut straight to the chase, and I have yet to see any personal bias he wrote regarding the philosophy.

In all, this book is a great reference.

I am a beginner in Kendo so take this all with a grain of salt.

I thought this was a tremendous book. Well written, clear, and thorough. I think it rivals "Kendo: the Definitive Guide" as one of the two best Kendo books. Particularly interesting, though not useful unless you're already a sandan or so, are the sections on Nito and Jodan. I haven't seen info on those kamae in English anywhere else.

Good book and a worthy addition to your library.

Excellent history, terminology, and coverage of Kendo. Very well written. Great drawings of movements.

This book has precisely everything that I was looking for with regards to all the basic techniques, history, equipment, even two sword form, kata, waza and so much more.Regards Kyoshi Ejaz 5th Dan, Ken To Fude No Ryu, Solly Said's Karate, Kickboxing and Kenjutsu

Packed with valuable info and tons on guidelines!

Very useful for the practicing kendoka, particularly in helping one memorize the katas properly.
