    A number of us have been in contact with some very experienced and knowlegable kendoka. What has been the most interesting/helpful advice or info you've heard from a sensai or sempai?

        Hmmnnn...A Shidan drew this up for me in my Kendo Dairy.

        Its a rectangle with a line running from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.

        The bottom line represents spirit and time, and the verticle one physical strenght.

        When we start kendo we use a lot of physical aspects in our kendo but as we progress with age we gain more in spirit and skill and require less physical strength.


        PEACE

            Relax....

            I've heard that like 50 times. I've heard some great things from my sensei in the past month, but can't remember. Good reason to start a kendo diary....

              "High Risk... High Return
              Low Risk.... Low Return"

              - Words from the famous Toda Sensei....

                If you are able to say "kote" when striking kote-men, that is telling you that your kote-men interval is too slow and/or large.

                  I'd be very likely to fall into narcissism if any Senpai/Sensei say this to me:

                  "Your Kendo is improving."

                  My favourite line within the dojo is:

                  "Kirikaeshi--------!!!"/ "Kakari Keiko--------!!!!"

                    Attack, Attack, Attack!! But Kendo is not suicide!

                      Ares - your reply is excellent, but something's still missing...

                          I think this came from a book actually...

                          Commit to every cut/technique as if it is your last one, then you will have no regrets after the end of keiko

                            "The amount of friends you make in Kendo is directly proportional to the frequency of washing your uwagi."

                              "this is stupid kendo"
                              "this is good kendo"
                              "this is kendo"
