Training continue on Zoom through the holidays | some interesting videos
Chiba sensei's Oji waza by ichibyoshi
We're continuing training via Zoom on Saturdays and Wednesdays throughout the holidays since, well, no-one's going anywhere so why not? :) Usual Zoom times: Wed 5.30 to 6pm, Sat 10 to 11am.
At today's training we were looking about seme and short techniques, particularly using the right foot for seme then holding that moment (tame - 溜め) before cutting men or kote with a small movement. The video of Chiba sensei above shows this particularly well.
And while I was searching I came across this gem again. Best subs on a Kendo video! The culprit is none other than our own Kenji sensei from MUKEN. Cheeky but still informative. :D
Lastly, we were also talking about ways to train against people of different levels and particularly against sensei. This excellent video is about Muay Thai but Kendo people will see and hear a lot of similar concepts.
