Eek! Re: Satome's Two Sword Practice


Thank you, Fred! That was exactlly what I was looking for. I knew there was something greatly benificial from such a practice, but I couldn't put my finger on it... but you did.

Enforcing awarness of the other hand would be extreamly benificial as I often times find myself concentrating too much on one hand and not the other. I often have to make myself work on one aspect of the technique and then the other before looking at the whole picture. That's good.

And I see your point on "multiple ma-ai." It has me greatly looking forward to the video and seeing it further explained and demonstrated. Excellent!

I'd be curious to hear more, but thanks for pointing out just what I was looking for.

PS: My apologies for my spelling. It isn't my strong suit by any stretch of the imagination.
