Re: all 7 suburi in one go?

There is no one way to practice and so the important thing is that you do practice, reflect, refine and receive supervision. Manogue Sensei once told me that, "the sword teaches" but without at least periodic input from other eyes it is possible to encode ineffective habits. I am lucky to often have hours alone in the dojo before and after regular class or during a Sunday morning class when no one shows up. In light of an earlier post I must assume that I practice slowly because it takes me the full 90 minutes to perform/practice the suburi, 13, 31, 6 and corresponding counters.
