The ken doesn't stop dead at the end of the cut, it rather "vibrates" as you can see here: This is sometimes referred to as "kime".
if we're supposed to stop the sword right before it reaches the target, won't it make our arms tense up? I imagine it would make my technique become stiff too.. will it not? I also imagine that it will make me stop the technique (e.g shihonage) in the middle of it's track too.. will it not?
