  • Hi all! Jumping in quickly on a couple of things:

    How to describe kendo as practiced by women– I feel there might still be a lack of vocabulary in multiple languages on how to describe certain abstract concepts. I definitely struggle how to describe my own kendo, knowing that the nuances in how I practice is very relative and may be perceived differently by different people. Perhaps this is where more of a feeling or experience with these teaches is important so we understand the essence of the concepts.

    I definitely think representation in kendo is part of a bigger issue that is in all levels of society. So knowing that many other fields and areas are still working on how to progress on this means that addressing it in kendo may take some time, but I’m so grateful to be a part of community that understands the need for this and is taking the necessary steps forward.
