Every month Iwao Sato sensei (Wahiawa Kendo Club) creates a newsletter. I look forward to reading his newsletter - it not only has important information about what kind of kendo events are happening here in Hawaii or who is visiting from Japan (or elsewhere), but at the end of each newsletter there is always a short story or personal thought from Sato sensei. I'm learning many things from him.
At newsletter time you often see Sato sensei passing out his newsletter after practice, which he puts in recycled envelopes. Or you can ask him to include you on his e-mail list. The Wahiawa Kendo Club newsletter is even more important because the Hawaii Kendo Federation does not have a newsletter.
As far as I know Sato sensei has never missed making a newsletter for each new month. Ask him how many years he has been doing this. He is like the ox in that Zen story that keeps on walking and walking and goes a thousand miles. Amazing.
