  • Post-keiko beer

    Is there anything better than a beer after practice with your fellow dojo mates? I'm hard pressed to think so.

    Just sayin'.

    Nope. I thoroughly enjoy the few times that we get a couple of of "of age" members out for a drink after practice. Always fun times with good friends and we get some insight and detailed information about Kendo, too!

        A cold mug of beer feels & taste so good after a tough practice!

          Shower then soak in a hot bath (Japanese style)

          THEN ice cold beer, snacks and kendo company

            I think we've had this discussion more than once before (though it's not one I'd discourage). I have my stock answer on the ideal nature of beer after kendo:

            1. Hydration after heavy exercise is important and beer is not so 'impure' that it doesn't help you re-hydrate.
            2. Carbohydrate reloading is also important and beer, is rich in complex carbs, fulfilling that need.
            3. For us older folks, mild analgesics can be helpful after strenuous workouts and the alcohol in the beer provides that as well.

            For these three reasons beer is clearly the ideal post work out, and therefore post kendo beverage...for purely medicinal purposes...of course.

              While I never drink alcohol, I very much enjoy the kendo bar scene when I can make it (it's a long way home).

                Hmmm ... how about beer after competition with a whole bar full of sword people from all over the country?

                  Every year we host a seminar/tournament/grading that is attended by people from all over the Canadian prairies. Having a beer after keiko with all my kendo friends that I only see once or twice a year is pretty sweet.

                      Yes.

                      Two beers after practice with your fellow dojo mates.

                        I usually make it three. And a whiskey to finish things off.
