I've never kept a training log, so I thought I'd try it and see how I like it. And you people can share in the misery if it turns out to be incredibly bad. Tonight was my weekly Karate and sword evening. The karate part isn't that hard-it's just learning the little idiomatic things that give me trouble. Henshi has a way of stringing together common blocks and strikes in ways I've never tried. On the surface they're easy, but making it flow smoothly is difficult. Learning the Japanese names for everything is kind of a b!tch, but it's not as painful as Iron Sand Hand. (kung fu folks will probably know what that is) I'm still using bokken and probably will be for a while. The fundamentals of sword aren't too difficult. It's stringing them together in a meaningful way that's difficult. That's all for now.
