  • Practicing at Home

    Hi, everyone! I'm a complete beginner at kendo, having gone for only two lessons, and I really want to improve. Is there any way for me to practice at home so I can build up some strength? My ceiling's too low for me to practice my swing, especially since I don't want to break any lightbulbs. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd really appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

    Do it in your yard?

      Strength training, yes, but if I were you (just starting out) I would stay away from swinging the sword alone for a while so you don't develop any bad swinging habits. I think the best piece of advice you'll find in here is "Ask your sensei."
