1 days 7 hours ago | | | Email

By Joseph Prattrpratt@civitasmedia.comDr. Tsuyoshi Inoshita held his annual summer kendo camp a little later than usual this year, due to health complications, but finally managed to fit it in during the last weeks of August.The lateness in camp came from a vehicular accident he had months back that left him with multiple injuries and some time spent in intensive care.“I wasn’t sure if I could really recover enough to do another one or not, so I was sort of procrastinating, but then I thought I should set a goal,” Inoshita explained. “I said, ‘okay, it will be the last weekend of this month.’ I wanted to avoid the holiday weekend, so we held it this past weekend. Then, we just did it.”
