The Dutch Samurai


In de confrontatie met ‘s werelds beste kendo beoefenaars valt of staat alles met het onder de knie krijgen van Japanse kendo normen en waarden. Kunnen de Nationale kendoka’s Sayo, vanuit Japan, en Werner, vanuit Nederland, onbevreesd genoeg vechten om te presteren op het WK?


” To mold the mind and body.
To cultivate a vigorous spirit,
And through correct and rigid training,
to strive for improvement in the art of kendo.
To hold in esteem human courtesy and honor.
To associate with others with sincerity.
And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.
Thus will one be able:
To love one’s country and society;
To contribute to the development of culture;
And to promote peace and prosperity among all peoples. “
