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!

Back at training

Last night I resumed my training after almost two months of absence due to injury. I practised again with the Quebecans here in Quebec City. It was good to see the friends here again, and as the last time, I had a good training.

My task last night was to let my body get used to the kendo movement and intensity. There wasn't anything that I haven't tried before. I was just trying to pickup my kendo two months ago.

Despite wearing the foot support on my injured foot, it still felt sore even this morning. During the training I almost had cramps on my lower legs, but fortunately it wasn't too bad.

I'm going back to Germany in a few days. My next training will be at the seminar in Czech Republic this weekend from Friday, held by Ozawa Sensei. I'm very looking forward to see him and the other accompanying Senseis whom I had met in Tokyo. After the seminar, they will come to visit in Dresden. This will perhaps be the highest profile kendo visit ever in Dresden!

Good to hear you are back! I remembered getting injured for a few months a year ago and the worst thing to me was attending to the trainings but not being able to train. Tough times. :/

We are really excited and looking forward to practice together with you and the Japanese senseis here DD!!!
See you next week, ne!


PS: On Tuesday the kendo practice will already start at 6 o'clock p.m. (at least this is when everyone should gather at the gym)
