Kendo Practice 7th October 2007

Spent a good chunk of time working on kirikaeshi again. Pointer for this session was to use more fumikomi. I think this means I need to push more and commit the body into it rather than just trying to stomp harder. Was also pointed out that I’ve a tendancy to rise up on my toes at the end of a cut (also spotted during suburi).

More working on pressure/seme. Seem to be able to sometimes get the feeling of pressure in my stomach, but not reliably yet. And I’m not putting enough into my kakegoe.

Jigeiko was good. Felt I was waiting/responding rather than just diving in for ippon.
