This instructional video was produced in accordance with the explanatory book "Nihon Kendo Kata". It shows seven strike forms of "tachi" and three strike forms of kodachi. A series of strike motions are explained by means of slow motion and stop motion techniques, thereby providing a comprehensive explanation of incorrect movements that kendoists tend to commit. Points you may have found hard to understand when reading the book are easy to understand when watching the DVD. This DVD is thus an indispensable tool for learning proper strike forms of kendo.
