  • kaeshi do help

    any advice would help here.
    I cant seem to be able to do a proper kaeshi do. when my opponent goes for men I raise my shinai but he is too close for the do strike. I am sure this is anoying for the motodachi although they have no problem hitting me.

    Just practice. You're reacting, rather than anticipating. You'll generally be too late that way.

      For kaeshi doh I focus on two things.

      First the foot work. If I am concerned too much about opponent's men my feet becomes static. Move feet to avoid the cut not by moving upper body.

      Second don't think about receiving. Practice kaeshi doh with the image of practicing nuki doh. Receive as straight as possible, as if you are going for suriage.

      And like Neil-san said make the opponent cut men at the timing and maai you want.

        Or just practice nuki doh - it's easier, as effective, and not nearly so tricky with the timing. Kaeshi doh is hard.

                18 hours a day???


                I have troubles with this also, i think the key is just more practice and anticipation (which ofcourse comes with practice).

                  I don't know a good solution for this...but I think if it's the distance that's the problem, maybe you're pausing too long between blocking the men and hitting the doh. by then, your opponent will probably be right next to you from going through with their zanshin.

                    I'm also really bad at all kind of do cuts especially, Men-kaeshi-do but I'd like to share this. We had Tanaka sensei from Japan at a seminar we did here in Sydney a few weeks ago and he taught us how to do kaeshi do. He made us practice as a pair and count each movement so we could work out the right timing ourselves. It was a great practice. As Neil mentioned Tanaka sensei also told us that we shouldn't just wait for the oppornent to cut our men but force your oppornent to react with your strong same and make him to cut your men so you excute kaeshi-do properly. I tried this when I went back to my dojo and it worked quite well...not all the times though. But I learned more things than just kaeshi do by training the techinque as I am now more assertive with my movement and able to create more openings.
