On Tuesday, Stephan asked us to Jikeiko with first only Men strike allowed and, later, Men and Kote. It was a good exercise, because I immediately realised that I need to improve on speed. Someone whose name I don't know, landed his shinai on my Men almost everytime, and I felt extremely embarrassed.
I think I'll go to the Leipzig Champianship on 27th May, which will me my first shiai!!
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!
