ha ha ha i wish i could've been there! i'm moved to San Francisco cause of college. Sorry i didn't answer until now my computer also crashed so i bought a new one so all my bookmarks got deleted. I haven't logged on in a while. But if you ever come to SF come visit me at the dojo there.
Mine's the weekend of Nov 13-15... I'm not worried about the keiko portion... the kata has be a little concerned though. I'm sure you'll do well. The sensei are well aware of medical issues, so you'll be fine.
I was joking about it being another one of those crazy ninjers... if that was what I thought, I would have put it in the flames section. I was just trying to inject a little humor into the post to make it interesting.
How're things going? You got nidan shinsa coming up real soon don't you?
Hey Bokushingu, of course you can use what I wrote about keiko if you find it somehow useful.
Thanks for your compliment for my dojo kids. I am very proud of them too
Thanks for the rep, good sir
Good day Boukushingu (maybe afternoon for you, here is 8.40 am)!!
In the Ura osae post you wrote: "go one step farther with the osae. (1)from omote slight pressure with seme ashi then point towards the tsuki & watch their kote open wide ^_^ (2)Or osae from ura firmly & feel their increased resistance or them moving their shinai from under yours and go men (it seems their mind switch from looking for a suki to freeing their shinai or regaining center)" I feel exatly the same. Normally i go osae omote, if the aite try regaining the centerline forcefully i go for kote, for ura is the opposite. If i do omote ura and he try to regain center forcefully i move the kensen below the opponent shinai and go for men. Regarding the discussion we had on kusuzu in the very instant where your aite try to regain the centerline forcefully he broke his stance and you have the chance to hit something.
I know I gave you a good rep green blob but I forgot which post it was please enlighten me so I can explain about the "fresh" part. My sincere apologies for my bad memory.
We both are 34, so more or less the same generation of you. It's a pity that she doesn't do kendo anymore.
However, in the past days I just try the "hit on the movement of the rear foot" trick (using mostly nito, but even a few jodan), and i must say it works!
Now it's the turn of trying to perceive the expiration instant, a much more difficult task i fear...
Your wife is a martial art praticant? Unfortunately mine doesn't like kendo very much....
