5-Minute Dance Party | Shozo Kato – Way of the Sword

However, I believe

your ultimate foe is your own self.

In Kendo, even the sword is poetry. Nobody knows this better than Shozo Kato, Kendo and Iendo Sensai, who gracefully explains in less than three minutes the difference between Western and Eastern ideas of beauty, mental stillness and movement, and so much more.


Way of the Sword was produced by The Avant/Garde Diaries for MB!, the Mercedes-Benz art and culture website.

Trust me on this: Watching this short film will be the best-spent three minutes of your day.
