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!

First training of the year

which wasn't a memorable session at all. I turned up on time only to find that there were just me and Elisa. After half-an-hour of suburi and footwork-drills by myself, I proposed to her that we should begin training.

We did men/kote/do-uchi, kote-men/kote-do-uchi. Oji-waza: men-debana-kote, kote-nuki-men, men-kaeshi-do. Shikake-waza: harai-men.

Finally, we ended the training with ten minutes of jigeiko. Which I mainly used oji-waza, and really tried to observe my opponents motion.

Overall, it was a mild-training after two weeks of absence - a good starter.
