Hi, my name is Young.  I am an avid learner of kendo at 5th dan and am presently with the San Diego Kendo Bu in San Diego, California.

KendoNotes.com is intended to serve as a resource for learning more about kendo.  It was created with the encouragement and support of many fellow kendo members and friends.  The site was initiated for two main reasons.  First, for myself, to help me learn more about kendo at a higher level (kodansha) and in general.  And second, to share that learning with fellow dojo members and all who may find what I’ve learned useful.  To that end, when inspired, I translate insightful articles (Japanese ones thus far) and write articles on topics that I feel comfortable writing about.

If you are ever in San Diego, please visit our dojo.

Enjoy the site!
