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!

Stepping right foot to the left while striking kote

The weather in Taiwan is getting more and more humid, and in last Friday's training I felt that I could throw up in any minute after 30 mins into the training. Fortunately, the kakari-geiko stopped just in time. Phew~

When I practised with Ho Sensei, my kote strikes landed several times on the fist-part of the kote, which isn't valid for a point. I think the problem is that my right foot didn't step to the left side.

And I should make my men-strike more explosive.
