In July 2010 was Hon. Consul General of Japan in Sweden, Mr Leif Almo who is the founder of Kendo.com, invited to a training and demonstration session at Kagawa University Kendo Club in Takamatsu, Japan. The training was led by Professor Shinichi  Yamagami.

“The kendo demonstrated was of an eminent standard and as I have been training kendo myself I was very impressed both by the students but also how Mr Yamagami led the training. I am very glad that I filmed the session so Kendo.com can show this film to other students all over the world" says Leif Almo.
