In General Sword falling Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #1 New 07-31-2016 12:24 AM
Just came across an interesting article that highlights that when people try to swing a sword down with muscle all that they are doing is slowing it's terminal velocity.

It stated that one should try to let the sword achieve terminal velocity and then increase this with muscle in the correct direction.

I am not saying I know how to do this as I don't but food for thought

I was taught to do "Shohatto maegiri" every day for 100 hundred and one times. (It may be better some days to do it will bokken. -Miss one cut and you could die.) As I get tired then I start cutting better/closer and feel everything. (I learned that first from Shihan Henry Smith 6th dan)
