I must warn you though…
This website is not made to the public, meaning the content is not modified for the general public. The content is based on what I have been taught and my perspectives towards kendo. You may not like my perspectives towards kendo.
My perspectives of kendo are:
Kendo is a martial way. It is to train our mind (intangible) and improve ourselves as human-being using a shinai/bokuto (tangible) .
If you think kendo is just a mere sport, you probably do not like what I say and how I teach kendo.
If you are still interested…
It will cost you $7 every 30 days. Yes. That is all because I want as many as people to know what I have learned from my senseis past 30 years and want to share what I learned from kendo with you.
But I am sure that you want to take a look inside. So you have 10 day trial period. That means you will not charged for 10 days after you complete the payment process with PayPal.
Take your time to watch the videos. The videos taken after March 28 are taken with a wireless microphone. So kata training videos with my explanations became available!
Your Purchase Is 100% Protected
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’m so confident that Kendo Water-cooler will provide you a place to gain more knowledge of kendo and also share your experiences with other kendoists who love kendo.
I’m offering a “No-Questions-Asked” 100% Money Back Guarantee. All I ask is you try out Kendo Water-Cooler for 30 days and if you think it is not for you, then I don’t want your money. Simply contact me from a support area inside the membership and I’ll happily refund your purchase in full.
What if you cancel your subscription after the first 30 days? Your subscription fee for that month will be refunded. For example, if you become a member from March 1, 2012 and want to stop your membership on July 18, 2012, you cannot get the money between March 1 and June 30, 2012 but you will get the money back for the July. No Question Asked!
If you take a closer look at the value I’m offering today and these things are only available to those who come to the dojos, this membership site should cost far more than what I am offering you here. However I choose not to charge more because I really want you to take my experiences and learn from them, so that you too can get what I have learned from my senseis.
And you will have GIFTS too! As soon as you sign up, you will get those gifts!
I would like to talk to you about those gifts you will get after you become a member of the Kendo Watercooler membership site.
But why these gifts, you may wonder? The main reason is kendo and daily life are interacting each other. Your kendo should make your life better and your life makes your kendo better.
And the concept of kendo of All Japan Kendo Federation is to discipline the human character through the applications of the principles of the katana (sword). If you read the purposes of kendo, you will realise that kendo is to improve ourselves and our lives.
Through practicing kendo, you will realise a lot about yourself that you didn’t know. For example, some students didn’t know that they had this strong spirit inside them. They thought they were not competitive. It turned out they were really competitive. Or they thought they were very strong but when they started doing kendo, they realised that they have a lot of weaknesses in themselves.
That’s a good thing. That’s exactly why we do kendo. Also once you start realizing those things, you can start changing your life. You have to change your life in order for you or for me or for us to improve our kendo.
Changing Our Life Style For Kendo
For example, I have a lot of injuries through kendo or by something stupid I did in the past. I had shoulder, Achilles tendon and knee surgeries. They still hurt. I live with pains.
After all these years, at last I realised that I have to be healthy As healthy as possible. So in order for me to keep studying kendo, I have to eat well. I have to do physical therapy. I have to go see a doctor and receive good treatment. Whatever it takes, I do it.
To be successful in kendo, we have to set goals and discipline ourselves. Just like to be successful in our lives.
Changing Our Views
What I learned from kendo is to see things form a standing point of others. It does not matter how fast I strike or how many strikes I execute on my opponent, if my opponent does not feel anything from me. It is like this.
You can talk and talk to your spouse or friend about your point of view. But if you do not talk to them as they can understand, they will not get your point.
To make yourself understood, you may have to change your attitudes or the ways you see things.
Kendo can help you with that. We can work on these things through kendo and I learned it from kendo.
Realising the True Solution
After I execute a strike, I always question myself how it could’ve been done better or what I should’ve done before and after my strike. I am applying this to my daily life. After I talk to my wife or daughter, I question myself what and how I can improve more when I talk to them.
During kendo training, I am sure you get stressed out, annoyed or irritated by your opponent. But you are the one who should know how to deal with different types of kendo. It is just like our lives. We cannot change every single person we interact with as we like them to behave. We should know how to deal with ourselves to deal with them.
If you don’t know how to deal with yourselves or others in your work environment or in your life in general, you can learn from books. And you can apply what you learned from the books to your kendo training.
So that’s why I prepared those gifts for you. It will help you with your life and kendo. And kendo will help you with your life.
So I hope you enjoy those gifts and more importantly, I would like you to enjoy being a member of the Kendo Watercooler membership site.
I believe “To be successful in kendo, it takes to set goals and discipline ourselves. Just like to be successful in our lives”.

Kendo Improvement Supplement Resources
Ideas to Get Fit For Busy People (PDF)
~Think Outside the Box, Exercise Inside the Box~
This 16 page report will help you see things in different perspectives. I have suffered from injuries for more than 20 years and I still have difficulties with performing basic exercises such as push-ups.
On top of my physical issues, now among kendo, family, work and seeing a doctor, I just do not have time to go to the gym or make extra time for work-out. I just have to do what I can when I find time.
If you are busy or wanting to improve your physical side, this report could be a good start.
Dealing with Stress (PDF & Audio Book-mp3)
Kendo surely tells us how to deal stress. It is true through my experience. We do have meditation and you learn how to breathe during meditation. But then why I see many people getting stressed out by kendo?
Until you get to the certain point, you will get very frustrated because you find it very hard to get the kendo movements right. If not, that is OK but if you do, you certainly have to know how to deal with the frustration and stress caused by kendo.
You do not want to add another stress in your life, do you? I really hope that kendo will help you not causing you troubles!
This book has great tips to deal with your stress. That is why I want you to have this report.
- You can print it out or you can listen to the audio.
Goal Setting (PDF & Audio Book-mp3)
Needless to say, we all want to achieve our goals both in kendo and our lives. If we don’t know how, it is very hard for us to even start.
In kendo, we do have ways to learn the movements. However, unfortunately there are no good instructions on how to perform the correct movements. Why? It is because it is different from one person to another.
That is why you really have to analyse your goal and what you need to do to achieve that goal.
I hope this report will help you to acquire the kendo movements as quickly as possible together with another give “Kendo Quick Improvement”.
- You can print it out or you can listen to the audio.
