About Est. 2008

Hi, my name is George, and I’m a kendo and classical Japanese martial artists based in Osaka, Japan. Amongst other things I am the only non-Japanese fully qualified public high school kendo teacher in Japan, an amateur historian, a fluent Japanese speaker, a bit of an antique kendo book collector, and a life-long vegetarian.

Since launching the website way back in 2008 kenshi 24/7 has published nearly 500 articles as well as seven real-world publications, easily making the site the best kendo resource online.

kenshi 24/7 publications can be found at kendo-book.com and our archives here.

FYI, my first foray into kendo online started in 1994/5, when I developed Edinburgh Kendo Club‘s website. It was either the first or the second kendo related page online. How things have changed!
