Make life's journey a more wonderful experience by embarking on a tour with kendo!

"Ouch!" My wife had kicked me randomly in the middle of the night. I looked over at her and she was smiling. I wondered if I did something wrong, but no...she was still asleep. So I shook her shoulder to wake her up and asked her why she had kicked me. She paused, puzzled at my inquiry...but after a few moments she suddenly said, "Oh!, I was having a dream about being in a kendo tournament." In that dream, she said she got the most beautiful point, striking her opponent's head along with a strong foot stomp.

My wife, two daughters, and I love to practice kendo together. It is a really enjoyable and rewarding family martial art.
We often take kendo tournament trips, and enjoy it not only as spectators, but as competitors.
After the tournament, we tour the surrounding area and meet fellow kendo practitioners from all around the world.
Beyond the dojo, the world network of people who make the tour with kendo a significant part of their lives, makes my dedication to the art that much more meaningful and priceless to me.
