While in grade school, Uchida Sensei heard of
a kendo class at the Little Theatre studio in the
Applewood area of Golden, Colorado. Sensei
jumped on his bicycle and rushed to inquire
about lessons.  To his disappointment, he
found that the person who was teaching had
moved to Europe a few months earlier to follow
his passion of auto racing.   For years after,
Sensei continued his search for kendo
instruction, and in 1973 his dream came true
when he learned that Mr. Yamamoto was going
to start teaching.  Sensei was there for the very
first class and has been active in kendo ever
