    Car fixes

    Car needed to get that oil leak fixed. It go to the point where it could wait no longer. I mean it could, but it would just drain my money unnecessarily. Been getting hit in the wallet so badly I still am feeling wobbly. Actually, the day my car was in the shop i had to take a day off from MA. I actually...

    Ah, I see. Then an upward Tsuki is illegal since it can get under the throat protection while a direct Tsuki at the Mune is legal. It just has to fly straight at the Mune. Do you counter the incoming body weight with a strong thrust to the chest? And also take a step forward? Or would it be best to...

    So the act of thrusting (As opposed to remaining in chuudan) someone at the Mune as they come in to hit your men is illegal. How about if you left Tsuba zeriai after attempting a technique and step back with your shinai extended with the point pointed at your opponent, for distance control, and the...

    Canceling Men-Uchi with Do-Mune pressure

    How often is this done in practice/tournaments? How likely is it to succeed? Points? Tips? Suggestions? Negative Rep? Can this technique be used by anyone regardless of rank? Or is it something reserved for higher ranking Kenshi (Similar to Tsuki)? Is there a japanese name for this technique?...

  • I see what you mean though the wrist joint is quite close to the forearm area that is attacked. As I understand it sections that require more flexibility/articulation were vulnerable to certain strikes. I was told by my Koryu sensei that a slash to the wrist or finger joints would cause damage. As for...

    What the future holds

    My Muay Thai Coach was talking about his past spoils in the ring and he briefly touched a subject that made me rethink a few things. He mentioned the injuries that one accumulates when competing in that sport. Saying that somethings don't move as they used to and others don't move at all. He also mentioned...

    replied to Helping a fallen opponent up during shiai
    I would accept it, but I am me. I would not feel disrespected (Unless he drops me on my ass when I try to get up). If you do offer your hand do it knowing of the possible consequences you might face. If such consequences do arise then you at least knew of what could happen and made up your mind to...

    Two Handed Technique?

    I've been trying to find a Kali/Escrima academy to learn the art, but my efforts have been met by a wall called money . I wish I had more of it. The wallet is tight and that limits what you can take up / practice / nutrition / etc. So far the kali places I have find run at $100.00 usd and up. I believe...

    Survival....

    Muay Thai Practice was pretty brutal today. They bought these brand new thai pads and they literally felt made out of bricks! Basically needed to be broken into and therefore were nastily hard. It was elbow day, so we ended up waking those *^($#5(* like no other. I just kept laughing through out practice...

    Schedule Change

    I am making some changes to my schedule as the new years come in. What? You think I'd become lazier as Christmas and other holidays arrive? Only if classes are canceled! If it was up to me I'd double the amount of classes I am doing! Well, that might be taking it a bit far, but that is sort of the goal....

    Ballet and the Arts

    I thought ballet was difficult enough as it is, but this practice was specially difficult. Ballet requires pretty good flexibility, precision, and dexterity, but also plenty of strength. Techniques are hard enough to do them on the arcs of your feet with the turn out engaged, but now we were asked to...

    Transition to Free Sparring

    I was able to do some limited 'free sparring' my German longsword class. It was interesting to see how distance control was key for, well, almost everything. I was only able to do some limited sparring because I still need to buy additional protection gear. The session was limited to cuts only since...

    Kendo Practice Topped with Muay thai Practice

    Had a nice session of kendo and muay thai. I can't help but notice similarities between the styles. The foot work is similar that is for sure. Some of the strikes are also similar. The most obvious is the left cross! It is the same motion as trying to Tsuki someone. The difference though is the level...

    Training?

    Boy, this cross training stuff is really getting out of hand. Think about it. 4 hours worth of martial arts training everyday non-stop. Not enough yet? A couple of weeks ago I ended up doing a full six hour marathon going from dojo to dojo through out the day. I guess I am getting close to the 'Pros'...

    Aikido Practice

    Out of all the martial arts I have done Aikido has got to be the toughest. The degree of precision, foot placement, angles, hand placement, and body mechanics tends to boggle my mind. Kendo is the same, but (At least for me) Kendo is much easier (FOR ME). I'm not saying Kendo is easy, but I have a much...

    Hidillon,

    The crooked cut is a German Longsword technique were you aim to cut, or damage, the person's thumb/hand/wrists/forearm. From what my instructor says to me the thumb is the most valuable target since if you manage to slice it, or chop it off!, your opponent will be put at a severe...

    I see it kind of looks like a low level Hasso, but if that is a variation then I see it. Greatness! I remember watching Musashi no Ken though I never read the manga. Thank you also Neil Sensei for the Clarification on the level that should be in the picture ....
