Good practice last night. Points covered:
  • Trying to get "noodle arms" through repeated kiri-kaeshi (ladders next time!)
  • Men from different maai
  • Seme, pressing in toward tsuki and hitting with hips and legs
As I said last night, thanks for being so fluid. Summer is a time when people frequently have vacations, classes, workloads changed, etc. so it's good to be flexible and prepared to practice with whoever can make it and to shift the plan for practice to whoever shows up and what they need to work on. This is good in general as we are a club of working students, parents, etc. with frequent disruptions in our plans and lives. We also wound down with kata and thanks for working on that.

Also, in case you haven't heard: Midwest Kendo Day Summer Camp will be July 16, 2006 at MSU. All day. From 9:30 - 5:00, with breaks for lunch and then a break in the afternoon. This will be an excellent occassion to practice so let's all try to make it! Please let Eric and I know if you will be attending so we can RSVP.

Oh, and last, did you you know MSU's site had a very large index of images from the last All Michigan Practice? Check it out. Also, look how happy Battle Creek is with their performance at the Family Tournament. See you next year, Battle Creek, for revenge!
