About this blog..

This is a blog that I started in April 2006, just after I first put on my bogu (kendo armour). It collects the advices given by more experienced kendo practitioners as well as those from my own experiences. Both technical and the mental aspects of kendo are written in the blog. I hope someone will find them useful or interesting at least!

Birthday Kakari-Geiko

Yesterday at training the people gave me a birthday present -- Kakari-Geiko. All twenty Kenshis stood around in a circle and I had to stike men until I flatten out. Hee hee how fun.

During practise:
  • striking do after kote. I always strike it too low during uchigumi-geiko
During jigeiko:
  • be more aggresive and don't just stand around and do nothing..
  • was almost tsukied by Alex because I didn't delfect his shinai while striking men.
  • try to follow through after striking.
My heel still hurts. I hope it'll recover by Friday.
