The transition of kendo

As a followup on the article of Takizawa Kozo hanshi a while back, I present a translated chart of his that shows how kendo has transformed/evolved over the years. I wont attempt to explain it, I will simply present and translate it; I leave any conclusions to yourself.

Please click on the chart to see the full version.
