I AM GERARD THOMAS.
THE UNAUTHORISED KENDO DIARIES.
As Darren sensei likes to say, slower IS actually faster.
If there’s one thing for certain is that things change. Even Kendo, a staunchly traditional martial art changes over time.
One of the first things you learn about Kendo is that it’s something you do with other people.
Halfway through my lunchtime workout I thought to myself “this is a bad idea”.
And though everything had changed, it was like coming home to a world I’d left behind but never forgot… And it made me feel really good.
