This is simply the best book about kendo kata that has been written. This is not another "how to" book on kendo kata. If that's what you're looking for, then I'd recommend the AJKF's Guide to Kendo Kata, which does give you the "how to's".

This is simply the best book about kendo kata that has been written. I was fortunate enough to have had Inoue sensei as an instructor at the Kitamoto summer seminar for foreign (to Japan) kendo instructors many many years ago. Having experienced him as a teacher first hand I was curious to see how he would come across in written (excellently translated) word. Inoue-sensei's book is designed to tell you the "whys" of the kata, as well as the underlying reasoning that was used to arrive and develop the kata.

Kendo Kata are fixed patterns that teach kendoka (kendo practitioners) the basic elements of swordsmanship. There are two roles, uchidachi (打太刀), the teacher, and shidachi (仕太刀), the student. Kata were originally used to preserve the techniques and history of kenjutsu for future generations. In the past, many ryu or schools of Kendo had their own set of Kata that students used to learn.

Sensei, while reading Inoue Yoshihiko's book Kendo Kata: Essence and Application Translated by Alex Bennett on page 167 question states that suriage in kata & is done with the left shinogi, but on page 81 instruction of kata it says to do suriage with the right shinogi, can you clarify which is correct? Answer: Thank you for your question and sorry about the delay of my reply. Since I do not own a copy of the book (I should!), I cannot read the page to comprehend what’s been written more deeply. Suriage in N. should be done with tie right shinogi

About Alexander Bennett. Kendo Kata: Essence and Application by Inoue Yoshihiko (2012-08-21) Jan 1, 1840.

About Alexander Bennett. Alex Bennett was born in 1970 in Christchurch, New Zealand. He graduated from the University of Canterbury in 1994. He received his Doctoral degree from Kyoto University in 2001, and another from the University of Canterbury in 2012.

Deserving special mention is Kendo Kata: Essence and Application written by Inoue Yoshihiko, Hanshi 8-dan and translated by Dr. Alex Bennett (2003). is book describes the meaning of, and attitudes in kata-geiko in more detail than any other previous publication, helping the Western kendo practitioner understand the philosophical and technical aspects of kata. Moreover, it has to be mentioned that articles of various kendo related articles (original and translated) found within the pages of the Kendo World journal are worth reading for all Western kendo practitioners.

Its called Kendo Kata: Essence and Application by Inoue Yoshihiko and translated by Alex Bennet. No other kata book (or kendo book with a kata section) even comes close to it, including the ZNKR (All japan kendo federation) produced books. Katsuoboshi says: March 1, 2010 at 3:55 am. I’ve only read bits of Inoue Sensei’s book. I can’t seem to find the whole book anywhere. Is it still in print? George McCall says

The heart of this work is the philosophy behind the creation of the All Japan Kendo Federation Kendo Kata. Inoue sensei looks at the history behind the formation of the kata using records taken at the time, and also examines the theoretical underpinnings of the kata. In addition, there is a full photo section covering all the kata from 1 to 10, and an analysis of the changes to the 2001 Kendo Seminar Guidelines for teaching the kata. A valuable resource for all beginner and experienced kendoka alike.

This is simply the best book about kendo kata that has been written. I was fortunate enough to have had Inoue sensei as an instructor at the Kitamoto summer seminar for foreign (to Japan) kendo instructors many many years ago. Having experienced him as a teacher first hand I was curious to see how he would come across in written (excellently translated) word.

The book is a well thought out combination of four contributions.
The first section of the book combines the ZNKR kata instruction manual with the ZNKR 2001 kendo (kata) seminar guidelines for the kata along with notes that describe and explain the differences between these two descriptions of the kata with prior descriptions of the kata. These are all linked together with very clear cross reference pointers and illustrated by, for the most part, clear and clean photographs (more about the photos later).

The second section describes the philosophy behind the kata providing the reader with a much deeper understanding than the simple description of the kata, and subsequent practice can provide. This last section is what sets this work apart from other English language books on kendo.

The only negative point I have is that in some of the photos at the beginning of each kata description (these are step-by-step photos of the kata), the boken can be a bit hard to see.

This is not another "how to" book on kendo kata. If that's what you're looking for, then I'd recommend the AJKF's Guide to Kendo Kata, which does give you the "how to's". Inoue-sensei's book is designed to tell you the "whys" of the kata, as well as the underlying reasoning that was used to arrive and develop the kata. Many people only study the kata just before a promotion exam, and then go through the motions without understanding what it is that they are doing.
It won't guarantee that you'll pass a promotion exam, it's not that kind of book. But, it will give you a deeper appreciation for the kata and the relationships between teachers and students.

I had been looking for a thorough book on kendo kata... This particular book had everything I was looking for. It's a reference book for myself. There aren't many other practitioners where I currently live, so I have this to reference back to when I need it.

I truly enjoyed reading this book and I refer to it a lot in my studies of kendo kata. It provides a great deal of insight and history of the kendo kata, including some of esoteric understanding of the meanings of the kata.

very good
