kendo 心得 六

footwork:

身体重心不能过多放在右脚,否则导致前进困难,这是我现在一个严重的问题。身体重心在站立的时候要大概落在两脚中间的位置,这样更加利于左脚发力推动身体前进。

 

两膝不能弯曲,但是也不能过于挺直以至于锁住。避免左膝弯曲的一个关键就是左脚跟不要离地太高。

(don’t bend your knees while moving forward or backward. keep it straight but not too much to be locked. don’t over raise your heel because it will make your knees bend. about one inch should be enough )

 

swing:

keep in mind the power comes from the left hand. remember both left hand and right hand don’t use power from thumb and index finger. and always have the V shape that’s constructed by thumb and index finger. 

kendo心得五

周二的时候今天被sensei指出了几个问题。footwork 右脚移动的时候不能有扑腾的声音。要一直slide。这个要慢慢体会。只有姿势做对了,才不会发出声音。我自己琢磨了一个心得是,身体和左腿用力推动右腿往前移动,身体要始终保持平稳,重心要一直在中间(左右脚的中间)。

 

另外一个问题是,men的时候,strike下来的速度一定要快。上去的时候反而可以稍微慢一点,但是下来一定要快。其实上下要连贯起来成为一个motion。我之前类似于,上去很快,然后下来好像慢动作,又好像是我很小心翼翼的挥下来。henry后来很准确的找到了我的问题所在,就是我不知道该停在哪里,所以下来的时候很小心。于是henry就对我进行了这方面的训练,让我的身体记住我的右手和左手该停在哪里,这样就可以大胆的挥下去并且停在合适的位置。

 

后来yumi又指出了一个问题,我的左腿由于左脚离开地面过高,导致膝盖弯曲。

kendo心得 (四)

之前说的关于左右手臂full stretch,今天在yumi 的指导下又有了新的体会。右手要完全stretech,但是不能把肘翻过来,同时左手小角度弯曲(自然状态),左手臂会由于右手臂往前stretech,也会往前,但是不要求fully stretched. 同时要注意,左手才应该提供power的主要来源。也就是说,右手臂往前stretch的作用是起一个引导方向和距离的作用。

men的时候,往上挥和下挥 的时候,(肩部,手臂) 都要保持放松状态,只有在击打的瞬间grisp !but right after the grisp, relax again! 同时主要身体不要往后倾,这样不仅容易摔倒,并且导致本来可以reach却扑了个空。

KOTE: 上挥的时候,只需要把左手超过眼睛,使得眼睛可以看到对手的kote的时候,就可以了(相比之下,men的时候,要举起左手离forehead one grisp distance so that we can see opponent’s men!!.  并且kote击打时候的距离大概比men的距离要远一步 (也就是从kote到men的距离)

DO: 最佳击打点,是shinai的top 1/3的那一截的中点位置,击中对手的左侧边。击打中do以后,因为要把shinai往右划过去(cut through),但是同时要保持左手在身体中线,所以身体要立即朝右转45度角并且朝此方向往前通过opponent。

今天还练习了kata 1-4.  需要回去好好温习!!现在值得记住的几点是

ipponme: uchidachi (teaching position) do men strike, 落空,所以shinai要挥至膝盖,被Shitachi counter men strike后,先小退一步(左脚先后退),再退一步 (还是左脚先后退)

sanbonme:shitachi在往前刺uchidachi的时候,刺得位置不要太高,应该刺对方的do的前面那一块。

uchidachi的footwork有一个点很难习惯。在斜刺对方后,右脚在前面,然后接下来是对方连续2下前刺,而对应的uchidachi的第一步后退是右脚后退,第2步是左脚后退(这2步是正常走路的步法)。

Correct: 第3步仍旧是左脚后退,第4步是右脚后退,第5步是左脚后退,于是恢复至坐脚在后的position了。

Wrong: 这2步以后,恢复okuri-ashi的步法( in which we have to keep the left foot behind the right foot while moving.),连退3步, 几

kendo心得三

有几天没有写心得了。今天感觉收获颇多,就赶紧上来写下来免得忘记了。

1. kiai的时候,喊ya的时候要同时小前进一步。如果距离已经很近,就不需要喊ya,可以直接men。

measure distance is very important before hitting. 合适的距离以在men strike之后左右手都能fully stretched,并且tip of the shinai击中men。

在左手fully stretched的时候击打中men,同时右手保持在比肩部略低的位置,就会发现之前sensei说的“击打后不要press在men上,而是要 bounce回来”,会变得很自然. 这样的击打确实看上去更加有力,或者说灵活。

之前我tend to under-estimate the distance between me and my opponent. so I will bend my body unconsciously to reach the men. as a result, my shinai will overreach the men (striking point will be below the top 1/3 of shinai ).

2. men 通过对手的时候要快速通过,并且至少前进5步,要turn back sharply!! 为了帮助加快turn back的速度,要把shinai先收回来,转过身以后再摆回中段。如果转身太慢,就会被迅速转身并且紧追得对手击中men。

3. zenshin-kotae-hikai/sakai (back and forth shomen, sideways yokomen), 左右不需要角度太大,角度太大会在躲避了对手后无法向对手发出有效的打击,要假想对手挥men strike过来,躲避,然后再以men strike回去。

4 kote的动作和men不一样。kote的时候不需要举到头上,稍微低一些。具体还需要进一步学习。

25th Annual Cleveland Kendo Tournament

20130406_123146

刚过去的这个周末克村剑道巡回赛在case adelbert gym举行。来自north eastern各大城市的剑道道场都来了,new york, rutgers, cornell univ., kentucky, columbus, detroit, esastern michican university,ontario, etc. 最有趣的是有一个来自中国的mugen ryu kendo dojo,但是只有一名成员,3段,且是外国人的名字,我估计是旅居中国的美国剑客刚好回国度假就顺便来参加这次tournament了。

我作为case kendo club新进成员,虽然没有参加比赛,但是过去作为volunteer帮忙打杂。周六上午帮忙tie tasuki,下午主要做time keeper。  tasuki的活比较累,需要弄清楚接下来几场比赛的人员,然后找到他们给他们系上红/白带。time keeper相对轻松一些,只需要集中注意力观察比赛进程就好了,该暂停的时候暂停秒表, 恢复比赛的时候要恢复秒表,3分钟的时间如果到了,就举起旗并大叫 “Time”. 经常偶尔聊天会突然忘按表,有一次甚至3分钟已经到了因为聊天而没发现,多出了几十秒才发现。因为平时都很晚才起,今天8点就起来了,而且是戴隐形眼镜去的,所以到后来晚上8、9点就很累了,决赛没有怎么看,就到旁边睡觉去了。后来9点我就一个人回家了。

过去一个礼拜我自觉进步还是有限。不过周五晚上在joint practice的时候硬着头皮上去和sensei练习了kote, do, 还有kiri kaeshi。是很多人都列队在每一个sensei前面,轮流和不同的 sensei练习。我是在其他同学简短示范了后我就上去了。

笔记

开这篇日志用来记录看到的各种有意思的句子。

《新约·马太福音》中的一则寓言: “凡有的,还要加给他叫他多余;没有的,连他

所有的也要夺过来。”

24 year old virgin!

“Some of the advice people are giving are horrible, especially about letting girls know your a virgin. DON’T DO THAT! Let girls know very little about you.

From the first post, you problem is your just not aggressive enough. A man takes action, does not wait for the woman to make the first move. The girl you dated for 2 months was probably just waiting for you to MAN UP and just take what you WANT(kiss/sex etc)!

I can probably bet your awkward in some way. You are either timid, scared and always in the place you want to be, comfortable. Deep down you were too scared to take a risk and go for it because its somthing uncomfortable.

And I really don’t like where your placing your virginity. ‘Get it over and done with?’ I don’t see how this approach will make you better with women in the future. One of my mates went through the route you are thinking about (just getting it over and done with, with a slut) and you know where is he in terms of pulling tail? Right where he was before he lost his virginity. His problem is, is that his timid (his dull, not exciting), his passive etc.

Your going about this all wrong, you need to change the way you think.”

grandmas boy, step brother, Hope they serve beer in the hell

it’s interesting to read women’s expectation of men. so I will know better of what aspect of me is good and what aspect is not. try to improve what I can and accept what i cannot. so here below is copied from some online dating website.

“I’m not superficial, so I’m not looking for the hottest man alive. However I am looking for someone who is well put together, hygienic, and more closer to my age. I am attracted to men who dress well, more specifically who don’t have juvenile attire. I am charmed by a man with great personality. I love goofy men and men who have empathy, passion, wit, intellect, humor, discipline and respect. Attributes that I find highly attractive in a man, are those who are insecure, idle, ignorant, boring, sensitive, controlling, indecisive, and cowardly. I love adventurous go getter men who know exactly what they want to do in life and know how to enjoy themselves regardless of where they are. I love men who cherish themselves, their families, and friends but also know how to incorporate in cherishing a woman in their life as well. I am basically looking for a man who won’t be an utter disappointment to me, and the effort I am willing to put into a relationship.”
