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.
