Here are some photos from the BBQ with kendo people on Monday, May Day.
Training from yesterday didn't yeild much I think. Here are some reflections:
- The Kote strike should be more of a continous forward action, instead of a downward one.
- I still haven't considered Jigeiko as a routine practise. Partly was due to that fact that I try to hide too much, so my postures were mostly incorrect when I striked. I should just apply directly what I learned in Uchikomi-geiko.
- My blocking is not so effective. My opponent could still hit my Men even though I though I was defending it.
- I'm more aggressive. My Zanshin is better, i.e. I'm more ready to attack again after the previous one.
