Healing Kendo (癒しの剣道) by Nakamura Sensei – Overview

This is a translation of an article by Nakamura Sensei, 7th Dan – on the topic of seme.  It is based on a relaxed and efficient approach to kendo – that he refers to as “Healing Kendo” –  developed to counter a diminished confidence in his physical strength associated with aging.  The link to the original article in Japanese is: http://www.geocities.jp/gazo_asidachi/kumagro_niki/iyashino_kendo/iyashi_01.htm.  Incidentally, he also has a YouTube channel “nakayuki1952” with many helpful instructional videos among others.

My translation is presented in seven parts with links to each part below and also viewable in a PDF version. 

Here is a PDF version (4 pages) of the entire translated article put together by Ted Imoto Sensei which differs slightly from my translation.

I thank Nakamura Sensei for his kind permission to post this translation.  Translated by KendoNotes.
