Saturday Training 25/6

Footwork is something I need to work on - I feel I have my shinai swing ok but don't have my balance right.

Need to concentrate on a few areas...

1) More weight on left foot and remember to glide, glide, glide.

2) Patience!!! Speed is not everything - get the cuts right - especially when doing Kiri-kaeshi!

3) Practice fumikomi - i just can't get it together at the moment so need lots more practice!

Kiai is a must!!!! Nothing like a battle cry to get up one's confidence! ARRGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Welcome

I'm a Kendo newbie and these are my random ramblings about a sport that I'm really starting to get into.

Call it an online Kendo diary or call it what you like....
