kakarikeiko and keiko ?
I recently switched schools, which means i'm practicing with a different kendou club. The problem is, this club is very unskilled, mostly because they haven't had a teacher supervising the club who actually studied kendou for many, many years. Thus, the students are so poor that when I arrived, the old sensei who comes in from outside the school to teach, appointed me 'assistnt sensei'. This is a really weird situation, since at my last school I wasn't even IN the budokan hierarchy, I was a non-entity.
This puts me in a strange situation where i have to do keiko and kakarikeiko, but as the receiver rather than the striker. This is unfamiliar to me, but I want to learn to do it well.
Long winded explanations aside, I need some tips on kakarikeiko and keiko. (unusual but useful suburi for low levels would be useful too, they're doing really bizarre stuff now that honestly doesn't look very useful.)
