Don't grip it too tight. It makes your entire shoulder-arm etc prone to shiver when you stop. The grip should be just strong enough to resist someone pulling the sword straight out. It feels pretty loose!

Of course, if you try sword cutting techniques like Toyama-ryu, you will find out that aikido subori is completely different.
