    Thank you very much! At least I won't have to worry about L.Kote being a target while using Katsugi .

    All I can do is "Like" now... it seems I can no longer give rep... Oh well! But you guys can always negative rep me ~ Oddly enough my Rep level seems to have gone up? Don't...

    Thank you for your best wishes and support! It is a relentless path. I googled the saying but cannot find anything on it. Could you elaborate? Is it similar to the english figure of speech Jack of all trades master of none?

    "Such a Jack of all trades may be a master of integration,...

    Thank you for that though the only tactic I see mentioned is someone saying take a step back when you do the Waza, and someone else saying if the person goes for Degote you can score. Though I herd from Andy at AJB that degote is the perfect counter for Katsugi.



    Thank you...

    Okay, so moving left Kote to a position where it can be safely hit makes it a valid target? Such as bringing it from left to right side?...

    I thought I had read that word here http://www.kendo-guide.com/katsugi-waza-in-kendo.html but the closes word I could find was 'surprised'. I guess my mind must have added 'provocation' all by itself. My train of thought was that by opening yourself up you are trying to 'provoke' a response from an...

    Katsugi Waza Responses?

    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone have any website that has information on Katsugi Waza (Technique) combinations? After looking through the English Google the few results for 'Katsugi Waza' were pretty much 'Shoulder your Shinai and Strike what is open' period. I was hoping to find something more indepth....

  • Left Foot Forward Hasso and molding the men to not get in the way.

    So left foot forward Hasso brings some interesting challenges. One of them being the helmet's wings get in the way when you raise the Shinai to your ear/shoulder level. Due to the angle of the stance with the left foot forward and right foot back you end up with the need to turn your head toward the...

    So here is the plan

    The arts I plan to learn will be: Fencing, German Longsword, Kendo, Iaido, and Eskrima. (Plus Naginata and a form of Jo-Jutsu)

    Within Fencing I want to learn all 3 weapons Saber, Foil, and Epee. Later on I might stick only with Saber and Epee, but I feel Foil will be a nice weapon to come...

    At old age and a purpose?

    I have been thinking... (Here we go again) What is going to happen once I hit 60 years old? 65? 70...? I have been watching the older gray Kenshi and I have to say that I am impressed at the determination they put into kendo. I am talking of the 70+ years old Kenshi. Imagine if it is sometimes hard...

    Theater FIghting?

    My Koryu is starting to move toward theater related stuff. This is kind of odd. I am still trying to wrap my head around it. Basically I was told they used to do this sort of thing yearly, or twice yearly, and they stopped for a while. Now I was told they are starting to do it again. It basically is...

    Moving past the obstacles

    Okay, pardon my big mouth, but I was given a dose of humbleness.

    So, it is official. I need to go up to Dan. It is not my policy to do an art for ranks, but I was told not to do so much Hasso unless I am Black Belt (BJJ BLACK BELCH?). Kind of depressing, but true. I guess rank is that important...
