Safety issues always come first.
I can vouch for the Mori Budogu 'musyobou' ( hygienic ) set. It's fabulous stuff, and Mr. Mori is a great person to deal with. This 'Phantom' stuff is of Taiwanese ( pseudo-Korean ) origin.
Even for heavy, hypertrophy-specific weight training it's usefulness is not 100% proved. Many physicians and weight lifters say that it goes straight through the liver to the urin, even leaving some...
You didn't look either fat or big in the WKC man, I hope you have at least fulfilled the 'bad' part somehow :cool2:
There goes the little troll with the videogame alias causing ruckus again.
There has been a recent change over tsubazeri-ai rules.
Willian Fujikura, a brazilian player on the last WKC, got 2 hansoku when fighting Ando (JPN) because of illegal tsubazeri. It seems that now...
(that's marketing man)
No, really. Jakob is right. The main issue are the forearm muscles. Of course, having strong abdominal, shoulder, back and chest muscles really adds to stability.
Once Ares (long time no see) gave...
"you trade defence for the ability to strike faster. I assume that is the same reason the daito is held up in the air with nito"
Nope, that's not it I believe. Nito is slower than chudan. You're...
Kokushikan closed for a while but has been reopened not long ago. In a much lighter mood, I've heard.
As far as I know there's no set grade to be 'allowed' or 'introduced' to Nito or Jodan. I remember that Itokazu ( moocow ) once mentioned something about shodan in California. Sounds good...
You're over reacting.
The only problem I can see are people below shodan trying to pick up a stick in each hand because it 'looks cool'. Besides, Nito requires other atributes like physical strenght...
Not the infamous elbow-block. The shinai positively hits the datotsu part of the do but when it's sliding through he traps it with both arms, not allowing me to get through.
Does anyone know if it's hansoku to keep trapping the opponent's shinai under the arms to ruin the zanshin of a Do hit? It happened a lot to me last night. this moron did it all the time in standard...
Well, what can we say? Congratulations.
Just a little disclaimer
Depending on what video you see it might or might not be me, and it might or might not me the correct way to do things ;)
Actually it's an interesting point. If you get to read 'Musashi no Ken', that Musashi Kai book on nito, (http://www.buyubooks.com/product_details.cfm?id=10616) they don't talk about this daito raise...
True, lots of questions have been brought back from the dead these days. Must be a good sign, though, that they are still relevant. Or not.
Truth is, katate choyaku suburi is do-able these days....
I got the Kendoshop 12 WKC video now. The quality is nice, with some kumdovj-like slow-motion highlights. It was shot from the side of the court though, apparently with good quality amateur...
Me neither, but higher ISO settings (400 and above ) seem to minimize the problem, just don't ask me to explain it.
Give me a few more days and I'll tell you
G. What is the footwork on going backwards, in coordination with the cuts? Ki-ken-tai-ichi with the right foot or left foot? Is it the same as Hiki-men?
Usually it's the usual okuriashi backward...
It's digital media, but it can't be posted due to the large size ( two 700 mb .ASX files ) and also due to copyright issues I believe, but I'm not certain. Can burn CDs though.
