No I gave up alcohol as it was possibly the most destructive stuff in my life besides anger itself. I try meditation but also that takes awhile to see real effects. What is "suburi" by the way? I have tried anger management by the way and jogging also. Nothing really seems to help
Dear Alex,
Suburi is the term used to practice sword cuts as a solo exercise.After a couple of hundred/thousand sword cuts[especially if you hit a rubber car tyre] will tire [no pun intended ]you out.You will be only to happy to relax . Getting aggressive or angry will likely be the last thing on your mind.Maybe a bit of Za Zen training [Meditation ]might help as well?cheers, Joe.
