Men o semete kote

This is one of the videos I mentioned at training today. It looks just like a large kote, but it is actually a very smooth seme towards men and then kote when the opponent raises their shinai.



The other video which I mentioned today, of aigote-men,  I just couldn't find. I'll keep looking.  b

Kendo art




Well actually it's kenjutsu art, or Tenshinshoden Katori Shinto Ryu art to be really precise! It's a drawing I did based on a photograph of Otake Risuke sensei, the headmaster of the school, doing the characteristic jumping nukistuke (drawing of the sword) of his school.

Click twice on the picture and for maximum bigness.

Next term we are back on Saturday 15 October.
