I'm writing from my office's computer while sipping into my jasmin tea and biting a Chinese dessert cake, that I don't know how to call in English. Yesterday was the first "real" training. Catherine was here in the past few weeks so I haven't trained very much.
There were about 15 kenshi's in total, with about 5 without the bogu. The session was all kihon, and at the end jigeiko. I had the opportunity to do jigeiko with Jan, one of the strongest, who just came back from his internship in Africa, Stephan and Wibke. Overall I did well. My oji-waza has improved, that I could strike immediately after blocking.
My next goal is to work on having a proper maai.
My laptop has died on me last weekend. And it looks like I'd have to start looking for a new one. #$%@#$^@$...
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!
