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!
