After much convincing, cajoling, and arm-twisting from friends, I’ve set-up a Patreon page for kenshi 24/7. You may have already noticed the link in the sidebar, or after each post. Apart from those two links and this post you are reading now, I won’t particularly be doing much promotion, so if you are not interested please don’t worry, I won’t interrupt the usual posts with any hardcore sales pitch!
I started kenshi 24/7 started way back in 2008 (almost 10 years ago!), and since then we’ve posted hundreds of kendo/kendo-related articles as well as a number of publications. The site itself has been run – and will continue to always be – free. Book sales have kept the site running over the past while, but I do want to spend a bit more on the site, particularly to do the following:
- Improve the website (e.g. better hosting, more security, etc);
- Allow the site to be self-sustaining;
- Fund research (e.g. source material, go on fact-finding excursions, etc).
If I amazingly get a million supporters then any left-over support will go to helping my expensive shinai habit… !!
Anyway, long term readers know the score with kenshi 24/7, so I don’t want to go into any long spiel here. If you are interested, please check out the Patreon page and consider supporting the site.
