In shiai-geiko, we We split into an all female team and an all male team. We had only four in our team so Patrick had to fight twice. The lineup in our team was: Patrick-me-Georg-Patrick-Stephan; and in the other team: Anna-Lilli-Liv-Christin-Elisa. We won all the matches. But they gave pretty impressive performances. Elisa was especially strong, who showed a lot of fighting spirit.
I won my match 1-0 with a harai-men. Most of the time when I attacked men, Lilli blocked it. So I tried some feinting techniques and a do-strike. But the do-strike was not strong enough. A feint-men-kote landed sharp, but was not called out. (We had only one shimpan.) I guess it's because the view was blocked. Anyhow, I should be more efficient, and cleaner, otherwise exhaustion can reduce my performance.
Advices from Georg:
- Faster kote-men.
- Don't let the left foot fall behind
- When someone raises shinai to defend men, it's the chance to strike kote.
