It's been a while
Hello everyone, sorry for the delay and all. It is the end of the year and it gets hectic as all get out. Anyway, we have been preparing for the tournament in Detroit and I wanted to just reflect on some comments that have been made. We really need to become more aggressive in our kendo at Eastern. It is extremely important to develop this through becoming confident in "your own" waza whatever that may be. We have been working on a couple of different waza that are importnat as we continue to focus on the taikai. While doing so the concept of sutemi and tanden are extremely important. If we do not conduct these waza with sutemi they become null and void. Please make sure as you continue your practice to focus on the development of these two concepts. If you need help with them please do not hesitate to ask. I will hopefully be healed soon and back at practice. Have a great hoiliday season and remember how important kendo is to getting through the pressure and stress of the holidays. Cheers!
