ok so lets start with wooden swords, you should hold the sword firmly in your hand, (lefties in left hand, righties in righ hand) your stance should be feet spread apart about shoulder width, with your foot (the opposite one in coordination with your hand, i.e left sword hand right foot etc.) forward. it should be a relaxed stance, one which you can easily spring forward into, or side step a charging opponent. got it? take a few minutes to familarize yourself with the stance.

the few basic attack movements are a lunge, where you step forward and thrust your sword directly toward your opponent, a chop, which is kind of what we think of in movies, swimgin your sword around in an arc towards the opponent, and a slash, where we bring the sword over our heads and down on the opponent.

i want you to take your swords and find a place on the floor to practice these first three moves. lunge, (towards the middle body) chop (middle body again) and the slash (towards the head). as my sensei says, do this a 1000 times till u throw up. ^^ this will help you build muscle memory. Always stick to the basics!

ok, get to work minna!!!

Hi everyone!!! I'm going to stop being a teacher for all of my classes, since i'll be training more for my blackbelt test, so until another teacher is found, this class is postponed. Sorry.
