The Kendo Reader by Noma Hisashi
As promised, here is a link to a great new translation in English of what is a seminal book on Kendo technique and philosophy. The Kendo Reader or Kendo Tokuhon by Noma Hisashi is a classic of Kendo literature and is now available here . I will write a bit more about it at a later date. But for now, it is highly recommended. I would buy the hard copy, which comes with a free digital download as well.
