Following advises

Sometimes, in any aspect of our life, we are given too much advises, some times good, some times useless, and sometimes they crash each other, you know, “You can do this, and the opposite“.
Last weeks I have received a few very good advises.

Too tight.
That is how a dojomate described my kensen doing jigeiko. And he was completely right. The following practice, I tried to relax myself, starting by the kensen and it worked… more or less, but I felt lighter and faster. Good advises indeed.
But, it has a drawback, I tried to be so relaxed that when I attacked, I lost my grip in my right hand, crossing my right hand through the tsuka and putting both hand almost together.

Wrong movements
The other one is more difficult to follow, and it appears it is a bad habit I took. Very easy, every single time I tried men in jigeiko, instead of moving my forearms up and forward, I move them down and back my forearms and then move then forward. Uhmmmm, I have to work hard in it.

Anyway, more Kendo on Friday, and then two weeks off. A few days on the Scottish Borders are waiting to me.

  1. Hola desde Oviedo! He llegado a tu blog desde el de Celis (La vie en bleu) Que curioso que tengas nuestra página en los links, ¿eres de por aquí? Si es así, una visitilla kendil siempre es bienvenida 😉


  2. Por cierto, el club de Gijón también tiene página! http://www.kendogijon.es/

    Si, mas o menos. Aunque nací en Madrid, me crié en Luanco hasta los 16. Toda la familia de mi padre es de ahí, mi hermano nació en Gijón, voy cuando puedo aunque mis güelos ya no estén entre nosotros… vamos, medio Astur me considero. Por eso conozco vuestra página y la tengo enlazada.
    Espero que algún dia coincidamos para darnos de palos, no me importaría nada un poco de keiko en Gijón o en Oviedo. Siendo, además, una buena disculpa para pasarme por ahí. Aunque de momento, chungo, viviendo en Escocia y teniendo el grueso de mi family en Madrid, las escapadas a Asturias son cortas y espaciadas, lamentablemente.

    Saludos
