Thirty years ago, Ron Fox never saw himself as taking over a dying Kendo Club at Michigan State University. Fox studied at MSU and became interested in in the martial art of Kendo during his sophomore year.

Today, Fox is a Kendo world champion. And he is the leader and sensei of the MSU’s growing Kendo club - a decision that he calls one of the best he has ever made.

How he got into Kendo and how he became the leader for the club at Michigan State is a fascinating story that comes full circle.
