This is a place for general talk outside the theme of the group.

Talk about anything here.

Awkward. In every way. Everything from holding the sword to standing properly. I didn't know half the words the instructor was shouting, so I had to watch everyone around me.

The footwork was the hardest, standing was hard too.

However I learned quickly and overcame these difficulties in a week or two.

The only thing now, after nearly 7 years, that I find a pain in the arse is suburi and taebaki. It's not the swinging of the sword, but the footwork with is hard especially on hard wood or tatami. It hurts like a ****

Now for my Jujutsu class (which is the same dojo and instructor but a different day; Kenjutsu was Friday and Jujutsu was Monday,) it was a pain as well. Footwork and standing, balance practice and... the dreaded breakfalling on a hard mat... It sucked for everyone.


Well as they say; no pain, no gain. Or rather my favorite; Pain is the best instructor, yet no one wants to go to his class.

Yeah. Stretch. You're shoulders, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. Stretch well. Then try and keep your many preconceptions out of the picture. Have an open mind and don't act like you know it all. Keep an open mind and ask questions whenever you need to (when appropriate) and watch others around you for reference.

It'll be a month (or more likely a few months) before he gets it completely.

You did. I cleaned it up and restored it. I think it could be of some use as many of the topics have been getting way off subject.
