just started practicing kendo at a new dojo. i haven't been to kendo dojo in last 7 yrs. back then i was told when i do suburi or any cut or what not, i need to open up my elbow to clear the men. now i'm being told, that's bad form. since it's new dojo, and new sensei, i would listen and do what i was told. but just out of curiosity.. do you open up your elbow to clear the men? for me at least, opening will allow better wrist movement at the cut "wringing the towel'?
