Hey Matt,
Will add links later when I have a chance to go through my list, but I have to say right off the bat that you shouldn't include your link for "kenjutsu" if you are talking about "good" links. That particular link has mostly to do with Sports Chanbara, which is a children's sword game played with foam boffers that too many adults take seriously.

Paul is right. Sports chanbara looks like a healthy fun activity, but it's not kenjutsu by pretty much any reasonable measure.

My bad. I did not take a real good look at the link like I should have. I had a real hard time finding anything at all on kenjutsu. But that's what YOU guys are for!

I guess the "How to walk away from a fight" section is relevant to iaijutsu, but I am failing to see how the rest is

I think I have a few that might interest other readers. The first is a great retail place (no affiliation to myself) - http://www.e-bogu.com. Very high quality equipment for all sword arts.

The second is a series of articles by author Dave Lowry - http://www.koryu.com/library/authors.html#dlowry. Mr. Lowry is an exceptional writer and, by all accounts, a skilled sword practitioner.

The third is my own modest blog - http://www.ikigaiway.com. I write about a lot of sword concepts in conjunction with other martial arts related topics.
