"Kendo cannot just be taught nor learned. It must be trained day and night without quiting. Then you will know the true value of Kendo."
― Sasaburo Takano, one of the greatest pioneers of Kendo during the Showa Era.
"The sword is not just a weapon...It's also a mirror. It reflects the soul of the samurai. It is the soul of the samurai. Just as the blade can be tarnished, so can the soul be corroded. Swordsmanship is a discipline and a way of strengthening one's inner self."
