So today was my first Iaido class with an actual Iaito.
What a difference!
It seems that there is so much that I need to work on all the time. Ah well, I guess that's how I know that I'm learning.
With regards to my other training, when I walk down the street, I pull from the center and leave the rest follow slightly behind. I'm still trying to get my center to drive my arm movements, but my posture seems to be improving.
In addition, when I was sitting zazen today, my leg didn't get as numb. I really need to work on being able to sit half or full lotus though instead of indian style.
