Kendo Practice 4th October 2007

Tried to pull last weeks pointers for Kirikaeshi. Some of it came back, but it didn’t quite have the feel from last week. Something to keep chipping away at. We also did kirikaeshi with holding seme/kakegoe for 5 seconds before men, certainly makes doing each set on one breath a lot trickier.

Seme/pressure seemed to be the theme for the evening. Trying to push the kiai down into the stomach felt OK, my throats not sore which is probably a good sign. Still don’t feel that I’m actually putting that much pressure on. Also during jigeiko I find I’m trying to pressure forwards so much that I’m actually more likely to be the first to go.
