"I started Kendo in Brazil in 1975, and since then I have visited many different Dojos all over the world. I was very fortunate to have been taught by many different Senseis, who were all great instructors. They taught me not only Kendo techniques, but also the fundamentals of human character. I would like to thank all my Senseis and fellow Kenshis, who had the patience to practice Kendo with me.
Many people asked me if there is a good instructional Kendo Video in languages other than Japanese, and I was not successful finding one. This is the reason I decided to develop one myself, with the hope that it will help many people interested in Kendo outside of Japan.
This Video is based on what I have learned and developed during the 27 years of my Kendo career. My Kendo knowledge is not any close to perfect, however I have tried my best to introduce everything I know, and what I have been taught.
I am open to any comments or suggestions, in order to improve the quality in the next edition of this video series."
